Uttanasana

This is a standing head-to-knee pose, which typically works on the hamstrings and calves, relaxing them. It is also known to relieve insomnia, according verywellfit.com.

How to do Uttanasana

1. Stand straight with your feet together. Now bend your knees slightly and fold your torso over your legs. Move from the hips, and not the lower back.

2. Place your hands next to your feet or around it. Gently press both legs, lift the kneecaps and spiral your inner thighs back. Keep the legs straight.

3. Extend your torso down, ensuring your hips stay above your ankles.

4. Extend the crown of the head toward the ground. Draw your shoulders down your back. Return to the starting position. Press your tailbone down and contract your abdominal muscles, as you rise up slowly.
