Chin to Toe

9. Stand with your feet together and then turn the left foot outward 45 degrees. Bend your left leg and step your right leg forward, placing the heel on the ground and the toes up. All the weight should be on the left leg. Note that the bent left knee is over the left foot, not veering in or out of that alignment. Stretch forward from the crease of the right hip and stretch your hands towards the right foot. You may place your hands on the leg or, if possible, place your hands on the foot, pulling back on the toes and ball of the foot. Keep reaching the chin toward the toes, stretching the spine and torso as well as the legs. Remember not to push in your knee. Do not force this stretch. Breathe easily and let the stretch take place gradually, increasing each day. Inhale as you come up.
