Seated Forward Fold

Seated Forward Fold

Instructor:
  • Sit on your mat, stretch your legs out in front of you and lengthen your spine (if the backs of your legs feel tight or if your pelvis tucks under, sit on a folded blanket or a block)
  • Inhale: gently flex your feet and engage your deep belly
  • Exhale: hinge forward at the hips, keeping your spine long and arms relaxed (imagine navel-toward-feet more than head-toward-knee)
  • If your hands reach your feet, gently wrap your fingers around the outside edge. If not, place a strap around the balls of your feet, or rest your hands on the mat beside your legs
  • Continue breathing
  • On an inhale, press your hands into the mat to move back into upright seated position.
  • Exhale, relax
