- Sit with both legs in front of you. Bend your left knee, so your shin is parallel with your body. Bend your right leg and stack your right knee on top of your left ankle, and your right ankle above your left knee. The shins should be parallel. Flex both feet.
- Sit up tall or fold forward to increase the stretch. Hold Double Pigeon for five breaths on this side and then repeat this stretch with your left shin on top.
