Head To Knee Forward Bend Pose Instructions
1. Sit on the floor with your feet together and your legs extended.
2. Bend your right knee and bring the sole of your right foot close to your left thigh.
3. Exhale as you bend at the hips, slowly lower your torso and grab your left foot.
4. Hold the pose for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then switch sides.
Keep your spine long, lower and lengthen your torso until your chest and belly touch the thigh, and feel the stretch in the back of the extended leg. Deepen the stretch as you exhale and, as you inhale, lengthen through the spine.
