Supine Leg Stretch / Supta Padangustasana
Lay on your back with both knees bent up and heels on the floor. On an exhale, bring your knee to your chest and breath here a few times. On the next exhale, straighten the leg up and press the heel toward the sky. Hold on to the back of the thigh or calf if your hammies are tight. If your legs are super flexible, hold on to the foot.
As your leg is extended and you're holding on to the leg, make sure your shoulders are loosely laying on the ground. If they're floating, bring your arms lower on the leg or use a shirt or strap to hold the leg in place.
On the final few breaths, see if you can release the other leg straight out on the floor. Keeping your right leg on the right side of your body's meridian and the left leg on the left side of the meridian. Rock your knees in circles after both sides!
