UTTITHA HASTHA PADANGUSTASANA (Hand-To-Big-Toe Pose)
UTTITHA HASTHA PADANGUSTASANA
Starting from TADASANA (standing pose) raise left leg with knee bent and hold the big toe with left hand. Place right hand at right hip.
Inhale – extend (straighten) left leg forward. Breath steadily and hold the position.
Balance is key and improves overall strength. Exhale – bend leg, release toe and come to standing position. Repeat on the other side.
This pose gives a great, deep reaching hamstring stretch and muscles overall.
Strengthens the ankles and legs. Provides excellent balance overall. Improves back and spine.
