Double-Leg Stretch

  • Lie on your back, bend knees into your chest.
  • Engage your abs, and lift your head off the mat, keeping a natural gaze. Hold on to the outside of your ankles or your knees with both hands.
  • Inhale as you slowly lengthen your legs away from your torso, pressing them out with your heels together in a V shape. At the same time, slowly reach your arms up, stopping when they are by each ear.
  • Now exhale and sweep your arms down toward your ankles; as you do, bend your knees back into your chest.
  • Repeat 10 times.
