Seated Forward Bend

Health Tip Tuesday:

This yoga position stretches the hamstrings and helps to relieve pain caused by varicose veins. Start by sitting on the floor and stretching your legs in front of you. Hold your spine straight and slowly bend forward towards your toes, as far as you can go. Hold this position for 15 to 30 seconds, then sit upright slowly. Repeat this motion twice to help stretch your hamstring to relieve pain from your varicose veins.
