Parivrtta Trikonasana Meaning

Trikonasana refers to the triangle pose. And parivrtta trikonasana is a “revolved” version of the same triangle pose where the torso twists or revolves to reach for the sky with the lead hand and the floor with the other.

The Parivrtta Trikonasana Sequence 

Step 1: To begin the Parivrtta Trikonasana asana, stand in Tadasana (or mountain pose), i.e. feet together, toes touching and hands by your side. Exhale and jump with your feet, 3-4 feet apart.

Step 2: Raise your arms parallel to the mat. They should be in the line with your shoulder and be facing down.

Step 3: Turn your right foot 90 degrees to the right & left foot 45 degrees to your right. Make sure your left and right heels are aligned and turn your right thigh outward.

Step 4: Slowly turn to your right, exhale and bend down in front of your right leg and touch the floor with your left hand. Inhale and raise your right arm up towards the ceiling.  You can even use the “yoga -block” for the support, if you are unable to touch the floor. Turn your head up and look at the thumb of the raised hand.

Step 5: Make sure your neck is in a comfortable position.

Repeat the same on the opposite side.

What Are The Benefits of Parivrtta Trikonasana (Revolved Triangle Pose)?

One of the major Parivrtta Trikonasana benefits is that this asana helps activate the pancreas to produce insulin – a function that is compromised in people with diabetes. Diabetic patients should follow the Parivrtta Trikonasana step by step, as outlined above and shown in the video to gain maximum benefits out of it.
