Standing Split Variation
Start by coming into a lunge, right foot in between the hands. Bring the right arm to the inside of the right leg, and begin to wrap the arm under the leg, at the same time wrap the left arm around the back, binding with the hands. Lean and lengthen the torso forward, bringing more weight into the front right foot. Kick off the back foot, sweeping that leg up and straightening through the standing leg. The left hip will open slightly to the left. Keep powering through the standing leg as the torso descends and the back leg goes higher. Stay for 3 breaths, release and switch sides.
Good for thigh, calve and hamstring stretch. Strengthens the thighs, knees and ankles and calms the brain.

I am going to print this out, laminate it, and keep it with my gloves and spade.
