Lauren breaks down Standing Splits (Urdva Prasarita Eka Padasana) Level 1/2 Standing Splits is a deep stretch for the legs, especially the hamstings.  It will challenge your balance and coordination.  It is also a mild yoga inversion, since your head is below your heart, so you will benefit from the circulation.  It also reduces stress and strengthens your overall immunity. *Modifications:  Bend your standing leg to comfort and feel free to use a block or two to place your hands on. Watch Lauren instruct Molly step by step to get her splitting!
