Squatting is one of the most basic human movements, one of the first things we learn in infancy, however an ever increasing amount of people now spending the majority of their days sat at a desk, driving, watching tv etc. has lead to an ever decreasing amount of people able to perform the move safely and effectively. Regular practice will not only only stretch the knees, hips, lower back, feet, ankles and wrists but also aid in digestion, activate the metabolism aaaaand help towards those full range squats. Try this pose, 'Malasana' for 60 seconds a day, followed by a straight legged forward fold to counterstretch. Remember you can't force your body into any position, you have to allow the body to relax into it - breath into the hips and lower back, direct the breath into the targeted muscles and imagine a softening with every exhale, allowing space for any discomfort. Keep the head and chest lifted and shoulders drawn back. Use the elbows and positioning of the feet to intensify the stretch down the inner thighs and ankles. If you really struggle, begin by sitting on a chair with both feet placed firmly on the ground, pointed slightly outwards and fold forward with a straight back to bring the chest between the knees.
