Supta Padangushthasana A (Supta Pādānguṣṭhāsana) = Lying-Big Toe-Posture

Dṛṣṭi: pādayoragre = to the tip of the foot

From lying on your back.

Both legs are straight. Inhale and first raise the right leg off the floor and take hold of the big toe with the first two fingers (or hold around the leg/ankle instead).

Strengthen through the left leg and flex the foot.

On your exhale, lift your chest off the floor and bring the right down towards you.

If you can bring your forehead to your shin, or your chin to your shin.

Hold here for three to five breaths.

Release back down (or move on to Supta Padangushthasana B) on your inhale and release the leg as you exhale.

Repeat on the left side.
