Ubhaya Padangusthasana (Ubhaya = both, padangushtha =big toe)
Technique for Ubhaya Padangusthasana
- Sit on the floor with the legs stretched straight in front.
- Flex the knees and bring the feet closer to the buttocks.
- Catch the toes with the hands, exhale and stretch the legs up in the air, straighten them at the knees, pull the knee-caps towards the thighs and balance on the buttocks, keeping the spine as concave as you can.
- To start with, one rolls over backwards to the floor, and it takes some time and practice to learn to balance on the buttocks alone. Stay in the pose from 30 to 6o seconds with normal breathing.
