Unusual props - Supta Padangusthasana (Reclining hand to big toe pose)


Supta Padangusthasana is great for releasing your hamstrings. If you find holding your foot with a belt creates tension in your shoulders, using a doorway may be a solution.  To come into the pose lie with your hip by the side of an open door. Bend your right knee and place your leg up the wall with your foot flexed.  Shuffle closer into the wall and use the wall to help straighten your leg. Your left leg should be extended through the doorway or if you have lower back issues you may want to bend your left leg.  To come out of the pose, bend your right knee and roll to the left.  To repeat on the other side, turn your body around.

Namaste,
