Overview :

In Sanskrit, “ut” means intense, “tan” means to stretch or extend and “asana” means pose. In English, we call this pose the Standing Forward Bend. But in any language, this incredibly beneficial posture is both therapeutic and revitalizing. In Uttanasana, your head is below your heart. This allows the unusual occasion for blood to rush to your head (rather than your feet), giving your cells a rejuvenating boost of oxygen.

Steps to Perform :

Step-1

Starting from the previous pose, bend forward at the hips with your arms out to the sides.

Step-2

Bring your hands in front of your feet and try to press your palms to the floor.

Step-3

Shift your weight towards the balls of your feet, keeping your hips aligned with your ankles.

Step-4

Let your head hand loose.
