Lauren breaks down Forward Fold with Big Toe Hook (Padangusthasana) Level 1 Padangusthasana means hand to toe pose. It's a mild inversion so it increases blood to the brain.  It stretches the hamstrings and lengthens the entire spine, while messaging the digestive organs.  It's said to help sciatica. *Modification:  Bend the knees as deep as necessary.  This will help if you have tight hamstrings or sensitivity in your lower back.  You may also place blocks under your hands.
