Uttanasana - "Standing Forward Bend"

Uttanasana aka Standing Forward Bend is one of my favourite posture. This posture is pretty therapeutic and revitalizing. It calms the mind and smooth the nerves, also helps to relax my head and shoulders.

First stand with your feet parallel and hip-width apart. Bend your knees as much as you need to and go forth. You can sway a little side to side and enjoy for a moment. It took me some practice to get this flexible and straight. You can slowly try to straighten your legs to stretch the hips, hamstrings and calves :)

Free feel to play around with different variations too! You may slip your index & middle finger in between the big and second toe, straighten your arms and lift your front torso away from your thigh or simply grab your elbows and let your head hang heavy. Either way works :)

Happy weekends! x
