Trianga Mukhaikapada Paschimottanasana Pose
Start by sitt’ng on the ground with your legs stretched straight out in front of you. Bend your right leg, bringing your foot back so that the inside of your right foot is next to your right hip, with the top of the foot flat against the floor. Your left leg should remain straight out in front of you, with the toes pointed up to the ceiling. Keep both of your sitting bones on the floor.
Bring your hands together in a prayer gesture in front of your chest and inhale as you lift your arms up above your head, keeping the palms together. Then, exhale as you fold forward from your hip joints, keeping your arms in line with your ears and straight, positioning them towards the toes of your left foot. Make sure that you keep your spine straight, lengthening it as you fold forward, so that your ribs are over your left thigh, and grab hold of the toes on your left foot with both hands.
Hold this position for five deep ocean breaths, on the fifth exhalation, round your spine, lowering your head towards your left knee. Relax the back of your left leg through the stretch. Lift your head back up and flatten your back again while still holding onto the toes of your left foot. Then, let go of the toes, release and straighten your right leg, give both legs a shake to loosen them out, and return to the sitt’ng position, ready to begin the sequence again, this time on the other side.
