Hasta Pada Angusta Asana Yoga Postures Step By Step

The Sanskrit word hasta means hand, pada means foot, and angusta means big toe therefore this is the hand-foot-big toe posture.

The benefits of the hasta-pada-angusta-asana are similar to those of the ugra-asana (i.e.: spinal stretch, abdominal toning, gastro-intestinal stimulation). There is additional stretching of the leg that is outstretched as well as to the groin.
