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.
