‘Paschim’ means West and refers to the western/ dorsal/ back side of the Body; ‘Uttan’ means extended. So, the dorsal or back part of the whole body (from head to toe) is stretched. The back part of the body is considered the western side, because you would be facing the Sun (making the front part of the body the eastern side)
An amazing stretch for your hamstrings but also one of the best asanas to stimulate digestion as it tones the abdominal organs
Stretches all your back muscles
