The Triangle Pose or Trikonasana is a standing pose that stretches the torso. This pose is extremely beneficial for those who have a sedentary lifestyle or a faulty posture as it can correct the ill effects of the same.
The Triangle Pose increases flexibility of the spine, aligns the shoulders properly and tones the pelvic organs (as well as massages them). This pose can treat neck sprains, reduce stiffness, if any, in the neck muscles, shoulders or knees. It also imparts strength to the ankles, and is good at toning the ligaments of legs and arms. Triangle Pose can also tone the nerves of the spine and the abdominal organs in addition to it. Additionally, this pose can also stimulate the nervous system, tone the reproductive organs and build up the pelvic area.
Trikonasana is said to bring relief from gastritis, flatulence, indigestion, acidity and backache. This pose is good at improving the appetite, digestion and also increases circulation in the body. Triangle Pose can alleviate nervous depression as well.
