Ubhaya Padmottanasana - Both Big Toe PoseUbhaya Padmottanasana - Both Big Toe Pose by Sue Fuller

This posture will help strengthen the core whilst releasing tension in the back of the legs and improving concentration and focus. 

Begin sitting on your bottom, draw your knees in towards your chest hold onto your big toes with your first two fingers and slowly unfold your legs.  Point the toes and work to bring the legs towards the face (not the face towards the legs).

This is a strong posture that requires a degree of flexibility, when starting to practise this posture begin by holding behind the thighs and just lift the legs as high as comfortable or just extend the legs so that the lower leg is parallel with the floor, this is a great place to start.
