March Mat-ness Challenge Day 11

Double Leg Stretch

Double Leg Stretch is the third in the Fabulous Four series.  So, it also begins with you lying on your back and your head and shoulders lifted off the mat.  Legs should be in the table top position.  Reach your hands towards your ankles and stabilize your shoulders by pulling them down and back.  Keep the abdominals pulled in slightly to maintain stabilization.

Begin with an inhale. On the exhale, reach your arms overhead as if you are taking off a hat.  At the same time, extend the legs straight as low as you can maintain your abdominal stabilization.  On the inhale, bring the legs back to table top, and circle the arms around to the ankles.

Perform 5-10 repetitions.
