Here's a dynamic pose that stretches your hamstrings while lengthening the spine. This photo illustrates the pose on the left side so it's easier to see what your upper body should be doing.
- From Twisting Extended Side Angle, release your hands and straighten your front leg. Hop your back foot in a few inches, and plant your left palm on the floor beside your right foot.
- Straighten your legs as much as you can, lifting your right arm in the air, stacking your shoulders.
- Keep your core engaged, and gaze at your lifted hand for five breaths.
