exhale fold forward from the crease of the hips with your hands on the legs above the knee. Lengthen the back. Extend the sides of the torso, lift the belly and ribs up. Do not push back into your knees, but keep the legs straight.

increase it. Keep your head up. Stay in the stretch for a few breaths and come up while inhaling. This warm-up stretches the muscles of the legs and back.
