I just got back from a lovely 60 minute yoga class at Lululemon and I was able to meet up with Sarah for the class. Every Saturday at 10 AM Lululemon in Burlington hosts a FREE yoga class. The class was a slow flow – but I had an “ah-ha” moment during class. While I would prefer a faster, sweatier, vinyasa yoga – I realized a slow flow class allows me to focus on my alignment and enables me to relax and breathe into a pose. Definitely more slow yoga on the way for me.
Triangle is one of the most beautiful poses to me – you ground into the floor with both feet, stretch your arms far apart from each other, and feel lightness and vibrant throughout your whole body. I always imagine I’m in between two window planes during the pose.
Alignment (according to Baron Baptiste):
- Heels are in one line
- Keep both legs strong
- Scoop your tailbone down and under (your booty should not be sticking out)
- Keep your upper arm active (and straight)
- Twist your torso
- Gaze at your upper hand
Modified version below – and the one I am more likely to do in a practice.
Breathe in the pose for five full breathes. With each breathe, relax your mind, and your body will follow.
Relax, Breathe, & Flow.
