Parivrtta means revolved, Parshva means Side, Kona means angle so the revolved triangle pose, when done using a chair as a prop is a supported twist making it easier to hold this pose for longer with the right alignment.
Props Required:- Chair, 1-2 blankets, a block or cushion
Organising the Pose:-
1. Stand in Tadasana, facing the chair, spread the legs 4 feet apart and straddle across the chair seat.
2. Bend the right knee and come into seated with the left leg stretched away, foot turned in at a slight angle, pressing into the floor firmly.
3. Rotate the torso from the base of the spine, towards the chair back and bring your left arm from below placing the forearm across the right thigh as you hold the back of the chair.
4. Reach the right arm over the head with the fingers pointing away. Press the left foot into the floor and maintain a straight line from the foot to the fingertips. Lift the top shoulder rotating the spine more.
5. Hold the pose for 1-2 minutes feeling the stretch in the ribs and spine.
6. Repeat on the other side.
Use of Props:-
You can place a folded blanket on the seat of the chair to give a cushion support or to raise the height of the seat if required. You can also place a block or cushion below the foot of the bent, front leg to raise it as you gain flexibility.
