POSE : Extended Hand to Big Toe Pose
SANSKRIT : Utthita hasta padangusthasana
- Stand firmly on one leg, bringing the sole of the other foot to the foam of the Flexistretcher and hold onto a strap in each hand
- While lifting up in the abdominals and standing leg, extend the lifted leg in front of you up to hip height
- If hamstrings are tight, keep a bend in the lifted leg and focus on keeping a lengthened spine
- For a deeper stretch, gently lift the top leg closer towards the torso, but make sure to keep the spine lengthened and hips square.
