How to Do Yoga Wide Angle Standing Forward Bend Variation A Pose - part of the women's fitness video series by GeoBeats. Hi, I'm Brenna, this is Heather. We are here at Bend Yoga Studio and we are going to demonstrate Prasarita Padottanasana Variation A. To begin, start with your feet together, and now on an inhalation step your feet out somewhere between 3 and a half to 4 and a half feet apart. And then turn both of your toes in slightly just so that the outer edges of your feet are truly parallel to the outer edges of your mat. And then from here place both hands on to your hips, squeeze your shoulder blades together, inhale, lift up through your heart. And as you exhale, forward bend over your legs. And as you finish your forward bend, place both hands down in between your feet. And then pause there. Inhale, pull your heart forward, get a little more length through your spine. And as you exhale, bend both of your elbows through your legs, and work the crown of your head down towards the floor. Stay here for somewhere between 5 to 10 breaths.
