In this pose, you hold the big toe in a forward fold. Stand in Tadasana with your feet at a distance of one foot between them. Keep your legs straight, inhale deeply then exhale and fold forward from the lower back. Extend your hands and grasp your big toes between the thumb and first two fingers of your respective hands. Keep your head up as you stretch the diaphragm towards the chest and make your back concave. Stay in this position for a few breaths. Then slowly exhale and to go deeper into the pose, bring your head between your knees. Keep pulling the toes at this stage. Your feet should remain firmly planted on the floor. Remain here for a few breaths, for about 30 seconds. Then inhale and slowly return to Tadasana.
