THE THIGH STRETCH
This is great to learn balance as well as a wonderful way to stretch the tense muscles in your thigh, aka the quadriceps.
Balancing on left leg bring your right leg up behind you bending at the knee. With your right hand grasp your right foot and push your calf into the back of your leg, feeling the stretch in the front of right upper leg. Hold of 30 seconds and repeat on other leg.
