Revolved Triangle (Sanskrit name: Parivrtta Trikonasana) puts the spin in Triangle Pose… literally!
This posture requires a great deal of mobility in the legs, torso, and shoulders. Additionally, it emphasizes balance and connection to the breath.
Because this twist is so deep, it is often difficult to maintain smooth, even breath so the challenge lies in maintaining that breath awareness throughout the posture.
While it is a foundational posture, it is also one that is challenging and not to be skipped! It is a standing posture typically done in combination with other poses such as Triangles, Warriors, or Lunges.
The pose itself is particularly beneficial for back pain, sciatica, hamstring tightness, and digestive problems.
