Intense East Stretch (Purvottanasana)

In Sanskrit, purva means east, uttan means intense stretch, and asana means posture. In yogistic language, the front, a part of the body right from the tips of the toes to the crown of the top, is taken into account in the east. Hence, in Purvottanasana Intense-East Intense stretch posture, or in other words, Upward Plank pose, where the entire front portion of the body is stretched to the utmost in an exceedingly slight back bend. It's simply the alternative facet of the body that is stretched and thus associated with the plank pose.
