    • Boosts circulation to brain and to adrenal glands
    • Cures and prevents sciatica
    • Increases flexibility of bottom 5 vertebrae
    • Improves functioning of most internal abdominal organs, especially small and large intestines
    • Enhances flexibility and muscle tone of ankles, calves, thighs, pelvis, and hip joints
    • Mitigates diseases of nervous system and effects of constipation, diabetes, and hyperacidity
    • Reduces abdominal obesity
    • Releases lower back

    • May alleviate depression

    How to Do:

    • Take a step (4 feet or more) to your right (wider stance = easier stretch)
    • Move feet increasingly closer (NOTE: if touching your forehead to the floor between your legs is easy, then use small steps; the higher the difficulty, the larger your steps)
    • Keep spine straight for as long as possible
    • Grab bottom of heels when they’re within reach, and then use arms to pull yourself farther down
