How to perform this stretch:

• You may need a cushion for your knee, to begin with
• Make enough space with the front leg going forward to allow better balance
• With the knee of the other leg resting on the cushion, use your hand on the same side to lift and pull the ankle towards your buttocks.
Push the hips slightly forward and ensure you are as upright as possible.

If kneeling option is difficult here are some alternatives:

If difficult reaching your ankles, try using a towel/ band for added reach. Alternatively, try my Quad Stretch Series 1 or 3 or Quad Foam Roll available on my social media.

Q) What if I’m feeling pain in the knee?

This may occur due to 1) inflammation, or, 2) wear and tear in the knee. However, doing this stretch in the long term will reduce stiffness, which is often the cause of pain.
