The Triangle Pose / Utthita Trikonasana

Trikonasana strengthens the legs, hips and arms and build strength in the core of the body. It stretches and aligns the spines as it elongates the sides of the body.

For people with Scoliosis, the Triangle Pose is beneficial for all four curve patterns, and it also de-roates the spine.

Since Scoliosis is a lateral curve off the spine, lateral bends help to lessen the curvature when practiced correctly.

As needed you may use props such as mat, wall, block, chair or rope wall to hold the pose. Ideally you should hold the pose for 90 seconds each side.

Yoga for Scoliosis

Last week I submitted my Thesis on Yoga for Scoliosis.  During the past year I had been working with clients whose bodies and lives have been severely impacted by Scoliosis. Under the guidance of my teacher, Elise Miller, I have been teaching my clients specific yoga poses and yoga sequences to help alleviate their specific types of scoliosis. Each client has testified to some improvement in their spinal curvature while also realizing strong reductions of Pain and great enhancements in overall flexibility. One client, who had debilitating migraines for years, says she no longer has migraines.  With continued practice the clients should soon realize greater improvements in their overall scoliosis condition. I will now be reaching out for additional clients who are suffering from scoliosis.
