Kermit does Yoga
Make a controlled rotation to your left while thinking of your spine spiralling upwards. Take the rotation more into the middle & upper back.
Place your left hand on the floor behind/beside you & your right hand on your left knee for support.
Repeat, turning to the right side.
Be sure that the left ankle is directly under the knee & that the trailing leg is straight out behind you. The back foot may be flat or toes may be curled under.
Gently lower the hips downward & forwards while thinking of the spine lengthening out through the top of the head.
You can leave the hands on the floor, bring them to the front thigh or even raise them above your head with the palms touching.
Repeat on the other side.
Hold onto the ankle of the left leg with the left hand to create a stretch in the front thigh.
DO NOT allow the knee to come out to the side or the spine to over arch.
Repeat on the other leg.
To perform Aikido, Jui-Jitsu, Yoga, Pilates, or something similar your body needs to be relaxed & supple. For this reason it's recommend that you incorporate regular stretching into your practice.
Aiming to stretch for 10-15 minutes 4-6 times a week not only helps to keep the body supple, but it also introduces the habit of regular practice into your life.
