(A found Rhyme Royal, kind of)
Stretch to a point where you feel a mild tension.
Do not bounce! Breathe slowly, rhythmically.
Any stretch that grows in intensity is an over-extension.
If possible hold onto something and keep your knees bent slightly.
Be relaxed in your mind and body: breathe easily.
Interlace your fingers and gently pull backward.
Hold only the tensions that feel good.
