Malaika Arora kickstarted her new year with an 'unwavering commitment' as she introduced a 'move of the week'. Malaika took to her Instagram handle to share a picture where she is seen doing Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana (Extended Hand to Big Toe Pose) in a swimming pool.
How does it help? This pose strengthens and stretches the legs and ankles. It challenges and improves your sense of balance, enhancing your focus and concentration. Malaika urged her fans to attempt the yoga aasan and gave instructions to do the same. She also warned people suffering from an injury of the hip, ankle, back, knee or shoulder to refrain from practising this pose.
Here's how to do it:
1. Stand-up straight with legs together.
2. Bring your left knee towards your belly.
3. Hold the big toe of the left leg with the left hand.
4. Inhale, extend your leg to the side shoulder level.
5. Maintain the balance on the right leg.
6. Lift your right hand up. Keep both your knees straight and look forward.
7. Hold for 10 to 15 seconds and release.
