Frequently Asked Questions
If you have lower back pain or injury, it’s best to avoid Baddha Trikonasana. If you still want to practice this pose, you can modify it by using a block or a chair for support and not going as deep into the twist.
Pregnant women should avoid Baddha Trikonasana, especially after the first trimester. The twisting motion can put pressure on the abdomen and affect the baby. Modified poses, such as Triangle Pose (Trikonasana), can be a safer alternative.
Hold Baddha Trikonasana for 30-60 seconds on each side. Make sure to breathe deeply and evenly throughout the pose.
