Advanced level

After you have practised these stretches for a year or two, you can progress to the advanced levels.

First, instead of transferring your weight to the outer leg of the arc of your stretch, do the opposite. For example, when you bend over to the left, transfer your full weight to your left leg. Keep it straight as you bend over on that side, and allow your right heel to lift slightly off the ground. Do this for the sequence of eight stretches.

Then straighten up and repeat the same exercise stretching to the right side.
