    SAMPLE: TRIANGLE POSE
</h3>


































    INSTRUCTIONS:

































    <p class="a-spacing-base">
        </p>Stand tall and face forward. Step your legs in a wide stance of about four feet apart.

Turn your left toes out to the side and keep your right foot facing forward.
Open your arms out to your sides and shift your hips slightly to the right, bending at the waist.
Slide your left fingers down to your left ankle, and extend your right arm up toward the ceiling.
Look up toward your right hand and hold for 20 to 30 seconds.
Repeat on the opposite side. Perform three sets.

    GOOD FOR






























    <p class="a-spacing-base">
        The Triangle Pose offers a deep stretch along the back and front of your lower abdomen while lengthening the sides of your torso and back. This is a fantastic stretch if you’re experiencing stiffness through your lower back and hips.





































    LEVEL UP






























    <p class="a-spacing-base">
        For an advanced stretch, lower your hand from your ankle down to the floor in front of your foot, and try to place your palm on the floor. Push forward with your pelvis and lengthen through your arms, forming a straight line from hand to hand.
    </p>







    <p class="a-spacing-base">
        If this stretch is too challenging, place your hand on your shin rather than your ankle and gradually intensify the stretch.
