Benefits of Trikonasana – extendended triangle pose
This particular pose strengthens the thighs, knees, and ankles. It improves deformed or weak legs, tight hamstrings, knee and ankle problems and flat feet. The legs have to be strong and stable to find steadiness in the pose. This is achieved by pulling the muscles of the legs and the knee caps upwards. This stretches the muscles and over time will build strength.
As the hips and waist are stretched and strengthened, excess fat in these areas is reduced.
- Strengthens the back. It can also correct a hunched back and if practiced regularly, will banish backache forever.
- Stimulates the abdominal organs. This aids in digestion, relieving constipation and indigestion, restoring the digestive fire and stimulating appetite.
- Helps relieve stress and is beneficial for decreasing anxiety.
