    Folded forward bend

    Calms nervous system, stretches hamstrings and back muscles

    Sit on the edge of a folded blanket, legs straight and together in front of you, arms by sides. Keeping spine long, exhale and fold forward over legs, stretching arms forward to hold sides of feet or calves; hold, then inhale and slowly lift back up to sitting.
