Tight Hamstrings? This Simple Yogic Stretch Will Do The Trick -- No Matter How Inflexible You Are

You don't have to be super bendy to practice yoga. In fact, the less flexible you are, the more likely you need to incorporate yoga into your life (after all, it'll improve your bend-ability).

In the video above, yogi Jules Mitchell demonstrates how to safely stretch your hamstrings through a series of forward folds. Mitchell reveals modifications throughout the clip, so even if you can't touch your toes while standing up straight, you'll be able to benefit from these moves.
