Reclining Hand to Big Toe Pose 2 Strap Block
Today’s tip is reclining hand to big toe pose with a block and a strap. Now, in this sequence, this is done in the middle of the room. So if you’re a beginner and you feel that you can’t do it in the center of the room, what you can do is you come and use the wall. So you lie down, have both feet against the wall. Have your block next to your hip and having your strap handy.
Then Sorayas bends her left knee, takes the strap round the ball of her left foot, and this is where the wall becomes an anchor. So if Sorayas presses her right foot firmly into the wall, and again, you want these toes to be vertical to the ceiling and the back of the heel down onto the floor, so press that right foot strongly into the wall, now bringing the left toe close towards the nose, back of the right hand is on the floor. Press enough into the left heel, exhale, taking the left foot out to the side, keep pressing your right foot strongly into the wall.
Now, for some people, again, you’ve got to work with your body, and just go as deep into the pose as you can. Don’t think that you can take the left foot close to the floor. Keep pressing out through your left heel, pressing your right foot, all four corners of the right foot into the wall.
And then coming out of the pose is the same. Inhale, bring the left foot up, slipping the strap off and bringing the foot back. And from there, you can go into the other side.
