Revolved or Twisting Triangle, Parivrtta Trikonasana, has always been a challenging posture for me. Over time however, as in yoga and life, the more we practice any one thing the better we get at it. After many years of practice, Twisting Triangle pose now comes quite naturally to me. I still find that sometimes my top arm moves out of alignment and that on occasion my pelvic bowl could use a slight anterior tilt adjustment. These are things that I can frequently sense from the inside out (from the mind/body awareness we develop as yogis) and correct by myself. Learn how to do Revolved (Twisting) Triangle pose with my yoga video below. In this video on how to do Revolved Triangle Pose, I guide you through every stage of the pose. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, you will learn how to find the proper Twisting Triangle alignment so that you are comfortable and able to breathe in the pose.
