Baseworks Practice 1.0 Series Episode 2: Triangle A
with Baseworks founder, Patrick Oancia.
The Triangle (yoga sanskrit name: trikonasana) is one of the many standing poses that promotes stability in partnership with gravity. The Triangle "A" version is all about "feeling" how the weight of the upper body hardwires the understanding of the centre point of gravity. Anchoring the feet by drawing them away from each other is the key element of the foundation needed to support the transition forward, automatically turning on the core and postural foundation.
Subtle movements introduced in the shoulders, spine, head and spreading the fingers ensure the "entire" body is on the payroll for the task.
"Triangular" shapes in the pose and are physical guides for the articulations in movement.
This introduction to the Baseworks Practice 1.0 series focuses on quality of movement. When the body and mind benefit from the effects of corrective alignment, it sets up the foundation for increased strength, mobility, flexibility, complexity and introspection.
Baseworks Practice is designed for any fitness, martial arts, dance, yoga and other movement discipline enthusiasts. It promotes wellbeing, optimal health, and mindfulness.
