Usually it is very difficult, if not impossible, to find a suitable place for asana practice during a busy workday. Moreover, it is not possible to continually cany a blanket around. Here we describe pada hastasana and three of its variations: pada angushthasana, utthita janu sirshasana and dynamic pada hastasana. These asanas can be practised at any time and place without the slightest preparation. They are all forward bending asanas; in fact they can be best described as standing variations of paschimottanasana1. They are all ideal for loosening up the spine, removing aches and pains in the back, neck and head and for removing fatigue.
