Supta Padangusthasana | Reclined Hand-to-Big-Toe Pose



 

This is a great pose to do if you have:

  • Tight Hips

    • This pose improves blood circulation to the hips.

  • Tight Hamstrings

  • Low Back Pain/Ache

    • The floor prevents rounding in the back and helps balance both sides of the back.


Avoid this pose if you have a current:

  • Hamstring Injury

  • Knee Injury


Props for this pose:

  • 1 Strap/Belt


 

Step 1

Lay onto your back with strap close by. Extend both legs long with feet hips-width distance apart.



Step 2

Hug the right knee into the chest. Pulse it in and out a few times.



Step 3

Place the strap onto the ball or arch of the left foot. Extend the leg up as if you were stamping the ceiling with your foot. Keep both sides of the strap in the left hand with shoulders down to the floor.



Step 4

Place the right hand onto the front of the right hip crease to gently keep the right glute grounded down to the floor. Gently flex the right foot and extend the leg long.


Hold for 1-3 minutes on each side
