You Will Need
- Comfortable clothing suitable for stretching and moving
- A calm place where you won't be distracted or disturbed
- A yoga mat or folded blanket
Sit on mat
Sit on the mat with your legs extended out in front of you.
Reach forward and grab your big toes, looping your index and middle fingers around them with your palms facing each other.
Bend knee & pull foot
Bend your right knee and pull your right foot up and back toward your right ear.
Bring right foot toward ear
Bring your right foot up to your right ear—rather than dropping your head down to meet your foot—as your back remains straight, your chest open, and your face forward.
Hold the pose for several breaths.
Release foot & repeat
Release your right foot back to the floor next to the left foot and repeat on the other side.
Hold for as many breaths as you did on the opposite side.
Release the pose by returning your left foot to the mat and releasing your grip on your toes. Bull's-eye.
