Tiptoe pose primarily builds lower body strength and flexibility. It is considered an intermediate pose due to the challenge of balancing on one toe, and the openness it requires in the hips.Additional benefits of tiptoe pose include:
- Improves balance
- Develops core stability and strength
- Opens the hips
- Keeps the reproductive system healthy
Tiptoe pose can be modified by placing the hands on the floor or on yoga blocks for support. Tiptoe pose can also be made more challenging by lifting the top leg straight in front of the body, straightening the knee as much as possible and holding the big toe to maintain the extension and balance.
