Triangle Pose - Trikonasana
Triangle pose is a classic standing pose and is one of the first poses taught.
Remember you are bending to the side not forward. If you cannot get your
hand to the floor, use a block (as in the video below) or a wood block on
stack of foam blocks or a chair seat. As you progress in the pose, work on
turning the torso into a twist.
Below is a YouTube video of Geeta Iyengar teaching triangle pose at at
Conventia Italiana a Montecatini in 2002.
