Featured Photo: Chair Triangle Pose
In this photo by Sarit Z Rogers, Marie Aroch, who uses a wheelchair, demonstrates how she practices Triangle pose. With her knees bent and feet on the footrest, she takes her arms out to her sides and then bends to the side, keeping her head in line with her spine, placing her bottom hand on a block that is at its highest and directly under her shoulder. She stretches her top arm up toward the ceiling, aligning it with her bottom arm, and keeps her eyes looking forward. The result is a beautifully aligned and open Triangle pose.
