Move onto this relaxing quad and shin stretch. If lying down in this pose is beyond your current yoga abilities, just sitting in Hero is great for your legs.
- From Wide Child's Pose, sit up and draw your thighs together, sitting in between your heels. If this is too much, sit on a block and stay here.
- Take a look at your feet and curl the arches around the curve of your bum, so your toes are pointing behind you and slightly toward one another.
- If you're sitting on the floor, shift weight back and lie flat back. Try to keep your knees as close together as possible to feel a deeper stretch in your quads. Lift your arms overhead and hold opposite elbows.
- Breathe deeply in this pose for five breaths.
