Seated Forward Stretch (Paschimottanasana)

In a sitting position, lift the arms overhead with an inhale, and then reach to toes with the exhale. Keep the feet flexed with the toes towards the body. This will increase the stretch. Lead with the chest and try to extend forward as much as possible. Take hold of the toes, if possible, and hold the stretch. If you are not flexible enough to grab the toes or balls of the feet, try holding a strap or towel and wrapping it around the feet. This will help to increase your flexibility and eventually you will not need the strap or towel to reach the feet. Hold this position for five to ten deep breaths.

Bound Angle Pose (Baddha Konasana)

Start in a seated position. Bend both knees outward and bring the feet close to the body, touching the soles of the feet together. Clasp the fingers around the toes as you pull the feet closer to the body, sitting up straight. This will be an intense inner thigh stretch. Hold for five to ten deep breaths. The knees may be up high due to inflexibility. Slowly bend forward to increase the stretch and hold for five to ten deep breaths. Baddha Konasana
