:: Yoga :: Asana :: Standing Asanas :: Trikonasana

a triangle and so it is named trikonasana.  This is one of the best yogic exercises for increasing the flexibility
of the body.  Young man when they practise constantly, can obtain good flexibility and joint stiffness reduces.
Good exercise for old people too.
