Parivrtta means revolved, trikona means triangle so the revolved triangle pose, when done using a chair as a prop is a supported twist making it easier to rotate the spine from the pelvis to the neck.
Props Required:- Chair, 1-2 blankets
Organising the Pose:-
1. Stand in Tadasana, spread the legs 4 feet apart. Turn the left leg in at 45 degree angle and the right leg out so the outside of the foot is in line with the outer hip. Rotate to the right, and have the right hand on the hip.
2. Place the left hand at an angle on the chair to open the right shoulder blade.
3. As you extend both legs back, extend the left arm on the chair and lift the right arm up, aligning both the shoulders.
4. Press the feet into the floor and rotate the torso by lengthening the right arm up as you press the left palm onto the chair seat for a deeper twist. Look at your right fingetips.
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.
1. Stimulates circulation to the spine.
