Few exercises to increase flexibility:
Spine, trunk turning- Stand straight with legs apart. Your hands should be behind your head and start leaning forwards. While doing so your legs should be stable. Try and bring the right elbow in front of the body to touch the left knee such that your trunk rotates. Return to normal position. Perform with the other side.
Spine, extension- Stand with feet together, hands upwards. Now step one leg forward and simultaneously move your upper body and head backwards. Return to start position. Repeat with the other leg. Yoga Postures
Spine, lateral flexion- Stand straight with legs apart and both hands behind the head. Now slowly start bending your right elbow towards the outside of your right knee. Repeat with the other side.
Posterior thigh stretch- Sit on a bench with your right leg straight on the table and your left leg resting on the floor. Now lean forward towards your right leg until you feel a stretch in your knee and calf. How the position for some time. Repeat with the other side.
Neck stretch- Sit or stand straight with your arms hanging loosely at the side of your body. Now slowly turn your head towards one side. Hold for a few seconds and then turn to the other side. Repeat 3-4 times.
