To stretch your back, pelvis and thighs, try the backward stretch. Start on your hands and knees, keeping your arms straight and your hands directly beneath your shoulders. Curl backward toward your heels as far as is comfortable for your knees. Tuck your head toward your knees and keep your arms extended. Hold for several seconds, and then return to the starting position. Gradually work up to 10 repetitions.
