Have you ever tried to stand as still as a mountain or as tall as a tree?
Yoga poses are exercises which started in India hundreds of years ago. They make our bodies strong and stretched at the same time as making our minds still and quiet.
Lets explore TRIANGLE POSE
One of the languages in India is called Sanskrit, in Sanskrit the word ‘Tri’ means three, ‘Kona’ means angle and ‘Asana’ means pose so Triangle Pose is also called Tri-kon-asana.
Stand upright with your legs together and arms by your side
Jump your legs 3-4 feet apart and spread your arms wide.
Turn your right leg out to face right, keep the rest of the body facing forward.
Bend sideways to your right, place your hand on your ankle and stretch the other arm to the sky.
Look up to your fingertips.
Keep all your limbs very straight like the edges of a triangle.
Don’t forget to breathe when you’re in the pose.
Silently count to 20 then try it on the other side.
