Utthita means raised up or extended; hasta is the hand; Padangustha is the big toe. This is a very challenging sequence, moving through Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana, as well as variations on the pose. Each variation stretches the legs differently and challenges your ability to remain anchored as you balance on one foot.
