Also known as:
- Feet Spread Out Intense Stretch Pose D
- Prasarita Padottanasana D

Benefits: This pose allows to feel supported and free at the same time, countering the feelings of isolation and constriction that often accompany anxiety and depression.
How to do it:
Stand with your feet in a wide stance. Bending from your hips, place the crown of your head on the ground with your arms next to your head. If your head doesn’t reach the floor, place a prop underneath it. Remain in this pose for one to two minutes.
