Yoga Tips for Women: Reclining Hero
Reclining Hero. This reclining pose stretches the front of the thighs, calves and the ankles. Be careful if you have bad knees.
Come up onto your knees and spread your feet about a foot keeping the knees together. Slowly lower yourself between your feet. Be careful of your knees. If you can come all the way to the ground, situate your hips so that you are sitting on your sits bones. If you are comfortable here, slowly lean back, coming down onto your elbows. The deepest stretch will be obtained by lying on your back with your arms above you head, grasping opposite elbows. Keep the feet with the soles facing the ceiling and as close to your thighs as possible. Hold the pose for up to 30 seconds and slowly come back up the way you went in.
