World's Greatest Stretch

Step 1

With your hands on your hips, plant both feet on a yoga mat hip-width apart. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Transfer your weight onto your right leg and lift your left leg up, bend your knee and draw it in towards your chest.

Step 3

Exhale. Take a big step forward with your left foot to move into a long lunge with your right leg extended and heel elevated, ensuring that your left knee remains stacked over your ankle.

Step 4

Inhale. Place both hands on the floor on the inside of your left foot and hold the stretch for three to five seconds, breathing deeply throughout.

Step 5

Exhale. Keeping your right leg extended and right heel elevated, release your left hand and extend your arm upwards. Lengthen your spine and rotate your torso towards your left knee, turning your eyes towards your left hand. Hold this position for the specified amount of time, breathing deeply throughout. Repeat this stretch on the other side.
