Sit on the floor with legs out in front of you, knees slightly bent. Let your knees fall to either side place the soles of your feet together. Grasp one ankle in each hand and place your elbows on the inside of each knee. Gently pull your feet towards your hips and press your knees outwards with your elbows. Keep your back as straight and upright as possible. Don't stretch further by having a round back. Feel a gentle stretch on the hip joints and inner thighs.
Hold the stretch for 10-15 seconds, and when you feel the muscles relax, gently increase the stretch a bit. Hold for a further 10-15 seconds.
