Today, on Olotita’s Youtube channel, we continue our Yoga Asana Series with video #11 looking at the Wide Legged Standing Forward Bend Postures, also known as Prasārita Pādottānāsana A-D.

These are the first wide leg stretches we see in the Ashtanga Yoga standing sequence, and they are wonderful postures to practice in order to gain greater proprioception, balance from right to left side, flexibility and are always awesome opportunities to really work with gravity to hold your spine in space as you move from posture to posture.

Last week’s Yoga Tutorial explored Side Angle and Revolved Side Angle Pose; two of my favorite standing postures.  The Prasārita Pādottānāsana’s come next in the sequence, building from what we have learned before.

As you watch today’s tutorial pay attention to how to ground your feet into the ground, how to engage your back muscles to keep your chest open, and focus on deep breathing with sound while engaging your internal muscles.

I post videos each week to build upon the topics from the week before.  If you’d like to start at the beginning with video 1, scroll down to see the full list of Videos in the series, beginning with our foundations video #1.  Then work your way through each following video to begin learning the foundations of a Yoga practice you can learn and do at home, while traveling, at your own pace.  All the video tutorials and classes on youtube are 100% free.  It is a way for me to share my passion for this practice, help others learn tools for self-regulation, health and happiness, and it is a true joy for me.

All of Olotita’s tutorial videos are here to help you go a little deeper in your understanding of the body mechanics of the movements, and your own body in space.  We recommend you watch the video all the way through the first time you watch it so you can fully absorb the lecture portion of the video.

If you are brand new to yoga, you are at the right place!  And if you have an established practice, we will be sure to share a few tips that help you take your practice to the next level.

If you want to join me in person I offer classes in Orlando weekly and will be leading a Yoga Retreat through Turkey October 1-15, 2022.  I also offer virtual sessions in Yoga, Meditation, Breath-work, Nutrition, Life Coaching and Mentorship.  Check out for more details.

I am a level II authorized Ashtanga Yoga teacher and I am passionate about sharing these teachings with all who wish to learn.

I hope you find this video series helpful to you in creating or maintaining your at home yoga practice!
