Grab the big toes in this standing forward fold.

Draw your navel toward your back with every exhale as you engage uddiyana bandha, which helps to deepen your fold.

The traditional "forward fold," Paschimattanasana stretches the entire back of the body.

Stretch one leg at a time with Janu Sirsasana A, mobilizing the hamstrings, calves, glutes, and low back.

Baddha Konasana is a forward fold with a deep hip opener. Try it with both a straight back and a rounded back. It is said that the feet have healing energy, so open the feet like a book, and try to touch your forehead to your toes.
