Sitting while folding your legs with the outside of your ankles "facing" the floor. Place one leg in front of the other.Keep your knees as close to the floor as you can. Breathe in, and then breathe out and bend forward from the waist until your chest touches your legs. Or get as close as you can. Hold for ten seconds. Do this five times. Work your way up to holding the pose 10 seconds each time. Now alter which leg is in front and repeat.
