Why triangles?

Triangular postures come with so many benefits! Check out just a few:

  • Increase stability by activating the core muscles
  • Stretch and lengthen the spine
  • Open the hips the shoulders
  • Stimulate internal organs
  • Reduce stress

We chose three different triangular postures to focus on – Triangle Pose, Pyramid Pose, Revolved Triangle Pose. Each of these requires a different shape, but activates very similarly in the body. The main muscle groups and actions we focused on in order to help our members deepen these postures were hamstring extension, hip flexion, core and side body control, elongated spinal column, and a little shoulder opening as well.
