Triangle Pose Focus
From Warrior 2 pose, begin by straightening your front leg (right leg). Reach the right arm forward as you draw the right thigh upwards, then tuck the hip in as you come forward and down. Bring the right hand down to your shin or ankle, if you are tighter in the legs use a block for support. Feel the left shoulder stack on top of the right, as you open the chest and lengthen the left hand up towards the sky. When you find your balance begin to take your gaze up towards the left hand. Stay in the pose for 10 deep breaths and repeat on the opposite side.
