I have been fairly obsessed with Utthita Trikonasana, or Triangle pose, over the last few weeks after reading that it was good for love handles. The waist seems so challenging to shrink! So I’m down for focusing on a standing pose that might hit the area that my regular ab exercises aren’t seeming to reach.
In addition to the toning, Yoga Journal says that Triangle pose also:
More experienced yogis can take the pose deeper by finding the big toe of their forward leg with their bottom/support arm; planting the palm of their support arm on the floor (as in the illustration above); or by engaging the core and floating the bottom arm.
What’s your favorite variation of triangle pose?
