Stand with your feet slightly apart and fold forward. Take your left hand to the floor, coming onto fingertips or placing a yoga block (or a big book) under your hand if it doesn’t reach the floor. Use your right index and middle fingers to securely grab your right big toe; using your left hand for balance, lift your right leg straight out to the side, as high as possible. (This really isolates the outer hip muscles, so don’t worry if you can’t lift your leg up very high.) Hold for 5 deep breaths and repeat on the other side.
