Asana Low Back Pain: Utthanpadasana

  • 1. Start by lying down on your yoga mat. Put your legs together, palms facing down and flat next to your body.
  • 2. Breathe in and raise your right leg as high as you can, but it is important not to strain any muscles (in your legs, back or otherwise).
  • 3. Keep your right leg straight and your foot relaxed while your other leg remains straight and in contact with your yoga mat, as shown below.
  • 4. Keep your breath in for 3 to 5 seconds while your leg is up in the air.
