Padahastasana, also known as the "Standing Forward Bend."
In Sanskrit Padahastasana literally means "feet to hands pose."
Stand in Mountain Pose (Tadasana).
Inhale and raise both of your hands over your head.
With your neck straight, look up and do your best to keep your spine straight too.
As you exhale, bend down and keep your spine as straight as possible.
In the physical sense, the ideal asana is to place the hands as low as possible, without roundinding the back. Some students will be able to bring the forehead to the knees and keep the knees straight without locking the knees.
Try to hold this asana for about 10-20 seconds to start with depending upon heart conditions, blood pressure or any other pre-existing conditions.
Slowly inhale and bring your arms over your head.
Come back to Tadasana again.
