Back to basics - standing poses - Revolved Triangle Pose

Revolved Triangle opens up the chest, stimulates the abdominal organs, strengthens the legs and improves balance.  

To come into the pose start at the back of the mat with the feet at hip distance.  Turn the left toes out to 45 degrees and keep the width between your feet as you step the right foot forward.  Lift through your kneecaps and bring your hands to your hips.  Ease your right hip back so that your hips line up with the short edge of the mat.  Breathe out an hinge forward pressing the tail bone back and the crown of the head forward.  Take your left hand to a block placed on the big toe side of the foot.  Breathe in and as you breathe out engage your core and rotate to the right. Raise your right arm.  Your gaze can be straight ahead or down at the mat. To come out exhale bring your right hand to your hip. inhale release the twist and come up. Step your feet together and repeat 2nd side.

For a more advanced variation line up the feet heel to heel and take the block to the little toe side of the foot.
