Many students do not consider how the body is designed to move and therefore attempt aggressive postures beyond their physical limits. This framework must be rewired if the student desires to practice for longevity. The most important component of each yoga posture is what occurs between the start and finish of the pose. It is the transition from point A to point B that defines the movement, not the end posture. Triangle pose is no exception to this principle!
Triangle pose has many moving parts. The upper body must synergistically move with a fixed lower body while opening up through the thorax (middle back). Check out the mini book by Keith Allen, yoga instructor, on how to perfect your triangle pose!

However, there is knowledge in physical therapy that can make the modern yoga practice safer, more effective, and healthier for the mind and body.
