Yoga Exercises : Yoga: Supine Position


Do your balance sequence here. We are going
to lie on the back now and just stretch the back side of the hamstring so take a laying
down position, supine, bring the right knee into the chest and grab the big toe with the
first two fingers of your right hand, taking a deep breath in lengthen the spine on your
exhale, extend the leg towards the sky. This pose might look familiar except now we’re
doing it on the ground in a supine position. We did this earlier on a standing leg. So
it is always an option. On your next exhale let’s bring that leg out to the side still
clasping the toe and again you could use a strap and place it around the sole of the
foot if necessary. Bring it back to center on an inhale. Lift the head towards the shin,
bringing the opposite leg up off the floor, nice and then relax back down to the floor
and switch sides. So take the right leg down, left knee into the chest, grab the big toe
with the first two fingers of your left hand and extend towards the sky, very nice. Giving
a little resistance here, make sure your shoulder stays in the socket and you pull it down towards
the floor. Exhale, open up with the leg, keeping the right hip firmly to the floor so you are
rotating the knee of the standing leg, your right leg towards the sky, very nice. Come
back to center, lifting the forehead towards the shin and the opposite leg off the floor,
hand on the thigh, a little abdominal contraction here. Make sure you breath on an inhale and
an exhale to complete that pose and then release on your exhale to the floor.
