Stretching: Need I say more…The student’s are stretching their hamstrings (inner thigh)
*Start on your back, face up
*Use a towel, yoga strap, or hand to hold onto the ball of the foot
* Either fully extend leg to the side or keep the leg bent if you have tight hamstrings
*Opposite arm is resting to the side into the floor
*Leg that is on the floor is still active, find length in the leg
*Engage abdominals, drawing the navel to spine
