Yoga Seated & Supine Poses : Reclined Hand to Toe II Yoga Pose

Yoga Seated & Supine Poses : Reclined Hand to Toe II Yoga Pose


Supta Padangusthasana B or II. Again, we’ll
start off laying on your back in a supine position, with length in your spine, so it’s
not uncommon to have the chin lifted. This is where you’re going to lengthen the back
of your head across your mat so that your chin is neutral. And again, other way around,
it’s not going to be pressed in; it’s going to stay neutral. Let’s go ahead and use an
inhale to extend the right, left leg up to the sky. And again, using your strap so that
you can hold on to the loop, rather than the tail, is going to make this pose a little
more available to your body. We’re going to need to give some attention to the left knee,
so this left knee stays directly in line with your hip. She’s going to take an inhale to
lengthen the spine, and on the exhale, she’s going to very slowly begin to open her leg
to the side. You want to give attention to what’s going on to this hip. So the hip needs
to stay grounded, and that will determine just how far that leg gets opened. The moment
she starts to lift is the moment she’s done. She needs to ground that hip, and again, look
at what’s happening with the knee. She wants to keep the knee in line with the hip, and
open up, and you can open up your arm for a little more support. But this is it for
her. She’s getting a nice stretch from the inner groin to the heel.
