Hi y'all, I'm loving the Gokhale Method! I have known for a quite a while that my hamstrings and probably also my hip flexors are super super tight. I'm wondering if there is a way to modify the stretch sitting so that I'm not only getting a stretch in my back, but my hamstrings too?
I'm trying to sit on the floor with a wedge to tilt my pelvis have my back streetched against the front of the couch and then also have one of my legs out in front of me to get a passive, comfortable/slight stretch on the hamstrings while I sit throughout the day. I'm experimenting with using my arms to hoist myself, tilt my pelvis until I feel a slight stretch in the hamstrings and then settle into that position to feel a continuous stretch on them. I would really love to get as flexible as the photos showing hip hinging!
Any suggestions/thoughts on any other ways I could stretch the hamstrings in combination with the sitting I'm already doing throughout the day? I'm finding between exercising, somatics, stretching, mobility work, trying to fit cardio in, etc. I could easily spend all day just setting aside time to stretch or strengthen something lol so any suggestions that work passively while seated would be awesome!
