This 5-Minute Exercise Will Make You More Flexible

Come on, get bendy.

If you struggle to touch your toes, this yoga sequence is for you.

In the video above, Udaya instructor Caley Alyssa demonstrates a gentle yoga sequence that'll improve your range of motion and help you get a lot more bendy. The positions will be more difficult at first; your hips and back may feel tight and you might struggle to get your hands past your knees, especially if you sit for most of the day.

Don't let the strain discourage you -- it's entirely normal, and with practice, you'll one day be able to reach the floor. Take notes from the yogic sequence, and start integrating these stretches into your daily routine.
