Karuna Yoga Vidya Peetham Bangalore

The standing wind relieving pose or Uthitta Vayu Muktasana begins at Tadasana or the mountain pose. Stand straight, with the heels and toes of both feet pressed together. Keep your arms by your side, weight distributed evenly across your feet from your heels to your toes. Raise your right leg, bend it at the knee and hug it into your chest, clasping your arms around the leg. Stay here with your breath as a steady, comfortable and easy pace, for approximately 30 seconds. If you want a deeper stretch, you can try and touch your nose to your knee. Then, slowly raise your head from your knee and lower your leg back to the ground. Repeat this on the other side. You can eventually increase the length of time you hold the pose.
