Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana)

Come into Samasthiti, bend your legs slightly, hands on the hip, push your hip backwards, elongate your spine, bend all the way forward to the ground and straighten your legs. Come as far as your back allows you without forming a curve. Place your hands next to your feet and look to your knees. If you don’t reach the ground, hold your head in the same line as the spine and gaze forward. Hips, knees and feet are in one line.
