Posted by Judith Winer on

 

Technique

 

Start position:

  • Lie on your back
  • Place a small flat cushion or book under your head
  • Bend your knees and keep your feet straight and hip-width apart
  • Keep your upper body relaxed and your chin gently tucked in

 

Action:

  • Bend one knee up towards your chest and grasp your hamstring with both hands below the knee
  • Slowly straighten the knee while bringing your foot towards you
  • Hold for 20-30 seconds, taking deep breaths
  • Bend the knee and return to the starting position

 

Tips:

  • Don’t press your low back down into the floor as you stretch
  • Only stretch as far as is comfortable, and stop immediately if you feel any pain, numbness or tingling

 

How Often?

Repeat two or three times, alternating legs, twice daily
