It's Friday! (I probably didn't have to tell you that, right?) Anyway, if you've had a long week, feel free to unwind with this gentle yoga sequence. It stretches everything out, and will help quiet your mind.
Hero Pose- Start on your shins, spread feet slightly wider than hips. With your thumbs, move the calf muscle away from your body and sit down between your feet. This will stretch the tops of the feet (great if you've been standing all day) and is a good way to find your center.
Child's Pose- Reach arms out in front, rest forehead on the mat, reach hips back behind you. Take a few breaths here. Totally relaxing.
Reach Back- Start on all fours. Lift right leg, reach back and grab foot with left hand. If you're able to grab hold, lift the leg and arm up a bit for a front body stretch.

Hope this helps!
