Chair squat
Opens hips and releases lower back. Sit on edge of chair and take legs wide. Turn feet out so there is no strain in knees. Inhale, lift sternum to lengthen spine. Exhale, pivot through hips keeping front of spine lengthened as long as possible as you reach to floor. Breathe. Inhale to come up. Alternative: You may wish to place elbows on knees instead of hands on the floor.
