Day 26 Parivrtta Trikonasana 

Twisted Triangle Pose





Parivrtta Trikonasana  (PAHR-ee-VREE-tah tree-koh-NAH-suh-nuh)

The Sanskrit name for this pose comes from three words:

"Parivrtta” — meaning “revolved”

"Tri" — meaning "three"

"Kona" — meaning “angle"

"Asana" — meaning "pose"

Twisted Triangle Pose is a standing, deep-twisting yoga pose that stretches the whole body. It squeezes and massages your digestive organs, while challenging your balance and concentration. It is sometimes used as a counter-pose to Extended Triangle (Utthita Trikonasana), and is also a good preparatory pose for deeper seated twists, such as Half Lord of the Fishes Pose (Ardha Matseyndrasana).

It also goes by various English names, including “Revolving Triangle,” “Triangle Twist,” “Twisting Triangle,” and others. But it doesn't matter what your teacher calls it. Practice this pose and you will gain all of its full-body benefits!


Parivrtta Trikonasana provides all of the benefits of Utthita Trikonasana, including:

Stretched hamstrings, groins, and hips

Opened chest and shoulders

Relief from lower back pain, stress, and sluggish digestion

Strengthened thigh, hip, and back muscles

Improved balance and stability, both mentally and physically

Increased body confidence, courage, and poise
