Hi Cate,

There are so many ways to practice and assist a student in Triangle. Iyengar, Sivananda, Kripalu, and Bikram all do it differently.

Here is a yoga video archive. There is one that is more about assisting a student in Trikonasana, but I think it will be helpful.


The stretch is felt in the legs, hip flexors, lower back, middle back, upper back, shoulders, and neck. Depending upon the body, the muscles will be tighter in one muscle group more than another.My neck will feel it more than anywhere else, but the student next to me may feel it in her hips. Let's say we both have equally good alignment. The difference is we have two bodies and two minds that are different. With more than seven muscle groups involved in Trikonasana, you could have seven students with seven different answers as to where they feel the stretch most.
