Downward dog

The downward dog is a position that most yoga practitioners will apply from time to time since it is used as a way to increase the strength of the body as well as stretch it.

To get to this position, start by being on all fours. Your wrist and knee should be under the shoulder and hip respectively. Once you have done so, lift the hips and if you have a hamstring issue, bend your knees a little. Stay in this position for eight breaths. After you have done so, come back to the rest position.
