Butterfly Stretch

Sit down on the floor, keeping your back straight. Bring the bottoms of your feet together in front of you so your legs form a diamond. Hold on to your ankles or feet. 1) Feel your inner thighs open up, so knees are about level with elbows, and hold the stretch for 10 to 15 seconds. 2) Bring your knees off the ground so they're almost 90-degrees from the floor and hold for two seconds. Then lower knees back down so they're about level with elbows again and hold for 10 to 15 seconds. Repeat sequence three more times.
