Trikona means triangle (tri is three; kona is angle). The Triangle Pose both stretches and strengthens the legs, while also stretching the torso and shoulders. It is important to keep the back of the front leg active to avoid knee hyperextension.

The safe exit by bending the knee appreciated. Also, love the simile of a piece of bread in the toaster - much more relatable than between two panes of glass!
