Lay on your back with your legs together and at a 90-degree angle in the air.
Turn out your legs from your hips so that your knees face away from each other.
Part your legs, moving them toward the floor on both sides of yourself.
Hold your legs in this straight, parted and turned out position when you cannot move them farther toward the floor.
Grab each leg at the base of the calf with your arms. Your left arm should hold your left leg, and your right arm should hold your right leg.
Exhale, and use your arms to push your legs firmly toward the floor. Hold the stretch for 20 seconds when you can push no farther.
Perform this stretch daily to improve your flexibility.
