Standing Separate Leg Stretching Pose is one of the 26 postures from Bikram yoga series. In this posture you will use your “strength” to create “flexibility”. By pulling on your heels, you generate the power to stretch your legs, hips and spine. The goal are to have your spine perfectly straight and to fully stretch your hamstrings by engaging your quadriceps and keeping your knees locked.

Benefits of the posture

It helps the functioning of most of the internal abdominal organs, especially the small and large intestine, and improves the flexibility of hamstrings, calves, pelvis, ankles, hip joints and releases the last five vertabrae of the spine.
