Standing Split Pose (Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana)

Standing Split Pose is an Intermediate to Advanced Level pose that is used to close the deeper hip gap and is thus included in Hip Gap Yoga Sequences. The upward (urdhva) extending (prasarita) of 1 leg (eka pada) during this pose is taken into inversion, whereas the stretching of the adductors of the hips (inner thighs) together with the hamstrings is the primary focus.

4 - On your next inhalation, carry your right leg up behind you, parallel with the ground as in mortal three.
5 - Roll the proper inner thigh up to internally rotate the proper leg.

8 - Start off the set by lowering the leg back to Uttanasana. Hold this pose for few breaths before repeating on the opposite side.
