Triangle pose is the master posture of the standing series, this posture helps with the marjor joints of the body. Triangle pose is an intense hip-opener that strengthens the muscles of the legs and increases stability. This posture purifies the body from the inside out as the organs in the hip area (colon, kidneys, reproductive organs) are stimulated in this pose. The twist through the upper body and opening of the shoulders help provide adequate room for the organs in the chest to function properly, bringing elasticity to the lungs.
Triangle pose feeds the cardiovascular system, especially for athletes.
