Topic 08.09 Standing Forward Bends

Stand up straight, with your legs together and your arms by your sides. Breathe in and raise your arms overhead stretching them up as high as you can. You will even be able to stretch your back doing this.

As you breathe out, tuck your tummy in and bend forwards and touch the floor with your hands. When your hands are flat on the floor, you can try to straighten your legs but avoid straining them, or your back.

Close your eyes and imagine stretching even further, just as you did in the sitting forward bend. Exhale slowly.
