One Pose Wonder: Reclining Hand to Big Toe Pose

Many of us may assume that if we can’t devote an hour to yoga, that it is not worth doing. I beg to differ!

I am excited to begin posting regularly ‘One Pose Wonder.’  This blog series will feature one yoga pose that you can do in the office, at home, in an airport, basically anywhere that offers many benefits on its own.

The first One Pose Wonder is…

Reclining Hand to Big Toe Pose:

Benefits: Soothes the mind, relieves back tension, stretches the back of the legs, the front of the hips, and the groins.

How: Lie down on your back. Stretch one leg fully on the floor in front of you.  Hold a belt with both hands and lasso up the arch of your top foot and slowly extend the leg.  If you don’t have a belt, hold the back of your top leg, but not behind the knee.  Hold for 8-10 breaths and switch sides.
