To build leg flexibility, try this classic yoga pose.
This traditional hatha yoga pose begins by inhaling and bending forward. Move one leg back with your knee and leg touching the ground and sole pointing upward. Alternatively, bring the leg back keeping only the knee and toes to the floor and the sole perpendicular to the floor (the leg will not touch the floor). Keep the other leg bent with the knee and ankle in line and both palms flat on either side, touching the floor. The head should look forward.
