Keeping your knees flexible is important to prevent injury in any sport you do. This routine of stretches will have you bending your knees in seated and supine poses. Throughout these exercises, we will also get some hip stretches too: what a bonus!
These stretches have advanced my practice! I’ve been doing these for many years, and they are my absolute favorites. I will share with you some unique variations, that seem like small adjustments, but make big changes to your practice.
Wanna learn splits the quick and easy way? I learned splits by practicing in bed with the plushness of my bed. That extra give, makes an easier foundation to practice this extreme hamstring stretch. Finding your full splits is a process, that is much easier to learn in bed.
