A stretching exercise that helps to improve the flexibility of the hips. It is quite difficult to perform and you need to be supple before you attempt it. It is not suitable for beginners.

▪ Sit on the floor with your back straight, one leg stretched behind so that the heel is touching your buttocks. The other leg is extended forwards with toes pointing upwards. Stretch your arms straight out in front of you and slowly arch forward until you can grab your toes with your hands. Hold for 5 seconds and return to the start position. Repeat on the other side.
