Triangle - solving the tight-front-hip issue

Triangle (all versions from all traditions) is quite a difficult posture in terms of 'finding the yoga of it'. The bigger wider versions of it can only really be enjoyed and understood whist using a plethora of blocks and other supports - without which the practitioner is likely to strain and pull on their spines (wide angle triangle is notorious for 'causing' sacro-illiac distortions which can become devastating injuries). The clue that you're not doing a particularly useful version of triangle posture is when the front leg hip is holding on like crazy whilst you move yourself into and 'hold' the pose. Here I offer an approach to a modified version of the posture that might give you a direct somatic experience of what it's supposed to feel like (intense, but light and pleasurable)

Enjoy! Tap the like button for me and leave a comment if you found it useful. And help me out by sharing it anywhere you think people might benefit.

The full class version of this is available to my premium members on this website (Silver membership is currently very low cost and gives you access to hundreds of 'yoga solutions' mini-classes on a plethora of subjects.) Membership prices are going up very soon, so if you want to have ongoing access to the inspirations and guidance I share, you should lock in the low price for your membership whilst it is still available.

If you would like a discovery call with me, or have a question about your body and your practice, you can book 15 minutes with me for FREE at

I regularly put on a Saturday morning workshop (10:30am start) on Zoom. It's interactive, and I run these centred around a cohesive theme of practice, and offer individual on-screen participants guidance as we go through the class. You can book to drop in to any of these, or attend with up to 100% discount depending on your membership level.

Other events... I'll be teaching at the World Yoga Festival (Friday 3pm and Sat 11am in the Water tent)

I hope to see you at something soon! Marc x
