Yoga Stretching Exercise :- Janu Shirsasana:

A seated yoga posture, it strengthens your overall body by stretching the shoulders, arms, legs and hamstrings. It also stimulates the kidneys and liver and also improves your digestive system. This head to knee stretch also is beneficial if you have high blood pressure.

Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you.
