Head to Knee

A popular stretch for runners, Head to Knee targets the hips and hamstrings while giving the back a nice stretch too.

  • Sit on the ground with your legs out in front of you. Bend your right knee, and pull the sole of your foot against your left inner thigh.
  • Sitting with a tall spine, reach both hands to your left foot, and stack your torso on top of your left thigh. If you can't reach your hands to your foot, rest your hands on your shin or knee. Try not to round your back.
  • Stay here for at least five breaths, relaxing your shoulders away from your ears. Then do the other side.
