Holding the feet and passing the knees under the elbows

In sitting, and in lying supine on your back, you hold your feet, extend and bend your knees, and pass your knees inside and outside of your elbows. doing variations of them, and in two different positions: in sitting and in lying supine.

An exploration how the extension and flexion of the knees relate to the hip joints, pelvis, torso and neck. As the legs are straightened, the quadriceps contract, and thus the hamstrings are required to release accordingly – via reciprocal inhibition. This exploration doesn't stop at the legs though, and might clear some pleasant new ways for the spine and chest.
