Trikonasana (Triangle pose)

Stand, erect, with your legs apart. Stretch your arms up to shoulder level. Bend your trunk forward and twist to the left, looking upwards and keeping your left arm raised at an angle of 90. Place your right palm on your left foot without bending the knees. Maintain this pose for a few seconds. Then straighten and return to the normal position. Repeat the procedure on the other side. Trikonasana is an all-round stretching exercise. It takes the spinal column flexible and helps reduse the fat on the lateral sides of the body. Besides, it stimulates the adrenal glands and tones the abdominal and pelvic argans.
