How to

Starting Position

1. Make sure to keep your leg straight and your thigh perpendicular to the floor throughout the exercise. 2. Do not pull the strap or towel too hard. The stretch should be gentle and comfortable. 3. If you feel any pain or discomfort, stop the exercise and consult your doctor.

Proper Form

1. Gently pull the strap or towel while keeping your leg straight and your thigh perpendicular to the floor. 2. Hold the stretch for 30-60 seconds. 3. Slowly release the tension on the strap or towel and lower your leg back to the starting position. 4. Repeat the stretch on the other side.

Breathing Technique

1. As you pull the strap or towel, take a deep breath in. 2. As you hold the stretch, exhale and focus on the stretch sensation.

Precautions

1. Lie on your back on a flat surface with your legs extended. 2. Place a yoga strap or towel around the sole of your left foot. 3. Lift your left leg up so that your thigh is perpendicular to the floor.
