Here’s Angi’s take on Supta Padangusthasana, Reclining Big Toe Pose.
Do it in three positions—with the strap around the ball of the foot, then around the arch, then around the heel.
Place the strap around the ball of your foot first. Bend the strapped leg and slowly extend it. Pull down on the straps. Imagine that each foot is pressing against a wall. (You can even press your lower leg into a real wall.) Keep feet parallel, not turned out.
If your back hurts, bend your leg.
Make sure your lower thigh is pressing into the ground. If there is a big gap between the back of your thigh and the floor, take a cushion or blanket and place it underneath.
Don’t crunch your shoulders, like Angi is doing here.
Point your baby toe up, then point your big toe up. Keep alternating, moving smoothly back and forth. Then point and flex the foot a few times. You should feel the stretch all up and down your leg. Now do your other leg.
