Seated Calf Stretch
How to: Seated Calf Stretch
- While seated on a yoga mat, extend both legs out in front of you.
- Bending from the hips, reach for your feet (or as far as you can). If you can reach your toes, gently pull them back towards you or rest your hands on your ankles or shins — whichever is most comfortable.
- Hold this position for the specified amount of time, breathing deeply throughout. Each time that you exhale, lower your torso further towards your legs, ensuring that you are bending from the hips and not rounding through your spine.
