From a standing position, exhale as you bend forward at the hips, lowing your head to your knees and the palms of your hands to the ground. It is OK to allow the knees to bend slightly to get into position. Hold for 3-5 slow breaths and enjoy the release as gravity gently pulls your neck and spine. As you get more comfortable with this position your can increase the stretch by “pushing” your hips upward through the legs and butt.
Take this move slowly and only bend as far as your feel comfortable. Be aware that you could feel dizzy so make sure the area around you is safe for a fall. If you have strength or balance issues that make this move difficult start with the half forward fold or seated forward bend.
