Start by lying on your back with your legs flat on the floor. Then bring one knee up into your chest, and hold your shin with your hands. Use your arms then to pull this bent leg in towards your chest as much as you can. During the stretch, keep your hips, shoulders and head on the floor during the stretch. Your spare leg should also stay flat on the floor.
