Seated Toe Touch for legs and back:

  1. Sit on the floor with your legs straight in front of you.
  2. Sit up tall, reach your arms straight up overhead, and inhale deeply.
  3. Exhale and hinge forward from your hips, keeping your back straight, and reach your hands toward your toes.
  4. Hold this position for a few seconds, feeling the stretch in your hamstrings and lower back.
  5. Slowly sit back up to the starting position, inhaling deeply as you do so.
  6. Repeat the movement for 10-15 reps.
