Uno, Dos y Tres

I’ve been fascinated by triangle pose (Trikonasana) since I began practicing yoga. This is a pose that I try to do everyday, even if it is for a couple of minutes at lunch time. It really makes me feel good. What I find magical about the pose is how our bodies become geometry, basic shapes of architecture, filled with strength and stability.

My first experiment with triangle pose was a couple of years ago. I created an installation with colored rubber bands entitled, Space Between. I didn’t set many rules while installing, I just knew I wanted to create a connection between triangles and colors. I began the installation — on what first felt as a huge wall space — slowly and carefully making triangles. But as I continued making triangles, the installation felt as a yoga practice — it began to flow naturally.

These days I continue to explore triangle pose — both — on my mat and in my home/studio. I’ll be posting images of this new set of triangles soon. I’m excited.

Oh, and how much I love google… While researching triangle pose, I found these great articles: Angle of Repose by Julie Gudmestad and Triangle Pose by Teri Leigh.
