Forward Fold Variations

 

POSE : Forward Fold

SANSKRIT : Uttanasana

Try these forward fold variations with your Flexistretcher! Begin with feet, hips width distance apart and release the body in a forward fold.

*For tighter hamstrings, keep the knees bent to release more in the body. It's more important to have a lengthened spine than straight legs*

Variation 1 : With the Flexistretcher on the lower back, it gently brings the body closer to the legs while you relax into the posture.

Variation 2 : Keeping the Flexistretcher under the soles of the feet and pulling up on the straps is more of an active stretch, as you bring the torso closer to the body. 

Try both variations and see what works best for your body!
