Supta Padangusthasana I is an excellent pose to improve hamstring flexibility. The actions in the pose can help relieve lower back pain by creating traction and releasing compression and tension in the low back.

Supta Padangusthasana II: In the lifted leg in SP II, the adductor or inner thigh muscles are stretched. This variation can be helpful with aligning the pelvis and relieving sciatic pain.
