  • Lift and cross your other knee over the foot of your crossed under leg.
  •  Drop down to your elbows and slowly slide your straight leg back until you feel a comfortable stretch in the back of your bent and crossed under hip (Picture A).
  •  Hold this gentle stretch position for 10 full swing visualizations – OR – until you feel a complete melting/softening of the initial stretch in the back of your hip.
  •  When you are ready to increase the stretch, slide your leg farther back and/or reach your arms out in front, lower your chest and head to the floor (Picture B).
  •  Repeat 1-3 times per day for both legs as needed.
