Instructions for the Seated Forward Bend Stretch - Yoga for Martial Arts Flexibility
This page provides details for the Seated Forward Bend Stretch. This Yoga pose is used by martial arts students in order to stretch and loosen their hamstrings, back and shoulders. If you are unable to grab your feet in this stretch, you can use a belt or towel to help you with this stretch. This exercise is not recommended for students with back problems. A very similar non-Yoga stretch is known as the Seated Toe Touches.
All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized.
