Triangle pose

Verywell / Ben Goldstein

Pose type: Standing

The triangle can be modified in a manner similar to extended side angle, using a yoga block for your bottom hand if you aren't comfortable reaching your arm all the way to the floor. You can also rest your hand higher up on your leg—on your shin or your thigh—but avoid putting it directly on your knee.

Don't hesitate to microbend both knees if the pose feels uncomfortable. This won't look or feel like a pronounced bend, but rather, just enough of a movement to unlock your knees and ease tension in your hamstrings. Triangle offers many benefits: Strength (in the legs), flexibility (in the the groin, hamstrings, and hips, as well as opening the chest and shoulders) and balance.
