Stretches calf muscle (back of leg below the knee), strengthens legs, improves circulation to legs, rejuvenates tired feet and legs and more.


  • Step 1: Sit slightly forward on your chair, feet flat on the floor, legs at a 90 degree angle. Contract your abdominal muscles slightly, lift up through your chest and lengthen your spine.  Drop your shoulders down your back.
  • Step 2: Extend your right leg forward and lift it up off the ground.  Press through the heel of your right foot and flex your right toes, pointing them upward.
  • Step 3: Stay here for 3-5 breaths, then lower the leg down, and repeat on the other side.
  • Step 4: When you are finished, rotate both ankles a few times, then return to work.
