Yoga Practice: Seated Forward Bend

The Seated Forward Bend Pose (Paschimottanasana) stretches the hamstring and calf muscles of the legs. At a Tucson, Ariz., workshop, yoga instructor Marianne Schloss and her student Friederike Almstedt demonstrate how to perform the Seated Forward Bend Pose. Be careful and listen to what your body tells you as begin this stretch, as there will be resistance in your legs – don’t persist if it becomes painful.
