This pose is great for stretching the back and abdominals.

Start by standing close to a wall about forearms distance. Squat down bringing the buttocks as close as you can to the heels. Bring your knees slightly away from the wall and turn your upper body towards the wall. Place your shoulder or arm firmly against your knee and use the wall for support. Release on an exhale and switch sides. Hold each side for 30 to 60 seconds.

Yoga Tips for Women: Hero Pose

This pose is good for stretching the legs. Be careful if you have bad knees.

Start in a position on the floor on your hands and knees. Keep your legs right under you hips. Spread the feet apart enough to sit down inbetween them. Slowly lower yourself to a seated position between your feet. If you can sit all the way down, place the hands on the thighs and sit tall. If you cannot come all the way down, come as far as you can without pain in the knees. Hold this pose for 30 seconds – 1 minute. Work yourself up to 5 minutes for maximum stretch.
