Hi. This is Sherri Stone from BioSpine Institute. Today, we're going to learn how to do a yoga pose called the forward fold. The forward fold stretches our hamstring muscles, which are really important to keep loose because tight hamstrings cause back pain. To perform forward fold, sit on a firm surface. Keep your knees straight, your back erect. The toes should be pointing towards the ceiling. And the knees should be as tight as you possibly can keep them. You're going to slowly lean forward, grabbing any part of your leg or foot. Your back should not over round. You're going to lean forward, grab on, and hold this position. If you're comfortable, you can bow your head to come a little bit more forward. You should feel the hamstring stretching as well as your low back. Hold this for as long as possible and up to 1 minute. If this is difficult or painful, don't lean forward as far or just try sitting up straight. To perform a modified version of this, sit on a small elevated surface. Keep your legs straight, toes pointed to the ceiling, and reach down. Do not over round your back.

Perform forward fold to keep those hamstrings loose and to prevent and eliminate back pain. [MUSIC PLAYING]
