You don’t have to be a contortionist to do the splits! And while dropping into the position won’t happen overnight, doing these two stretches regularly will improve the flexibility of your hips and hamstrings. If you’re looking for a longer stretch routine, check out this five-minute yoga sequence that preps your body for the splits.
The splits may be all about flexibility, but you don’t get there without strength – so be sure to check out Mandy Ingber’s new book Yogalosophy For Inner Strength, which explores the relationship between opening up the body and healing the mind, heart, and spirit.
