    This was a rough day, there will be a full blog post soon…
    #1 & 2: I was feeling really good about myself on these until I realized I was doing it wrong. Well, I can’t get my legs as far apart as she can, and when I try, I end up bending forward in order to get my arms behind my head. My modified version is a good stretch though.
    #3: Yet another that is going to be pulled from the list. I have no idea what to replace it with. This is NOT something that anyone but a long-time practitioner could do.
    #4: I’m not sure if I should remove this or not. If you put your back against a wall you’d have a chance, but getting your arms hooked and your feet in the right place feels nearly impossible.
    #5: Definitely one I, and probably most people, can do. I prefer it without the back prop, but that’s me. Putting something under the lower back does increase the stretch though.
