Yoga Triangle Pose

The Triangle Pose (Trikonasana in Sanskrit) consists of straight lines and clear angles: Your spine, your upper arm, and the front leg shoulder form a perfect triangle. Beginners may use a block support for the hand if struggling with balance.


Sanskrit: Utthita Trikonasana
Type: Standing
Level: Intermediate

  • Stand with feet wide, 3–4 feet apart. Shift your right heel out so your toes are pointing slightly inward.
  • Turn your left foot out 9 degrees. Line up your left heel with the arch of your right foot.
  • Keeping both legs straight, ground through your feet. Lift arms into a T at shoulder height.
  • Reach forward with your front arm. When you can’t reach anymore, hinge at the front hip.
  • Bring your front arm down to your shin, a foam block, or the ground. Lift your back arm up toward the sky and spread your fingers.
  • Take your gaze down to the floor or up toward your lifted hand.
