From your neutral hands and knees posture, tuck your back toes and lift into Downward-Facing Dog to stretch your calves and hamstrings. I like to shift my weight back and forth between feet to increase the stretch and introduce some gentle motion.
- Come onto the hands and knees into the classic upside-down-V shape called Downward Facing Dog.
- Hold for a few seconds.
- If it feels good, gently "pedal" your feet back and forth, lifting one heel and then the other.
- Hold for 20-30 seconds.
