    How to Do Yoga Extended Leg Stretch Pose - part of the women's fitness video series by GeoBeats.

    Hi, I'm Brenna, this is Heather, we're here at Bend Yoga Studio and we're going to demonstrate Padangusthasana or Extended Leg Stretch. Standing at the back of your mat and please step your left foot forward 3 feet. At this point you should be firmly grounded into your feet and see and feel that both of your hips are facing out into the front of your mat. And then from here she'll place her palms together behind her back in a reverse prayer position squeezing the shoulder blades together. On her next inhalation lift up through the heart and extend through the crown of the head, and as you exhale forward bend over your front leg or simultaneously squeezing your shoulder blades together. Lengthen through the back of your neck, and stay here for another 3 to 5 breaths.
