How to Touch Your Head With Your Feet

Save

Touching your head with your feet requires advanced flexibility and balance. You can learn how to do it, and then make it part of a stretching routine that can keep you limber and agile. You may not be able to go all the way at first, but don't force it. Just bring your feet and head as far as they will go. Gradually, you'll be able to bring them together.

  • Lay flat on your back on a cushioned surface such as an exercise mat.

  • Place your hands behind your knees. Your grasp should be firm.

  • Bring your knees toward your chest. Make sure that you keep your movements slow and controlled.

  • Slide your hands to your ankles. Grasp your ankles with a firm grip.

  • Pull your feet toward your head. Stop if you feel pain.

  • Lift your head up to meet your feet.

Tips & Warnings

  • Stretch your muscles often. It is important to stretch your leg, back, neck and stomach muscles if you want to touch your head with your feet.
  • Practice yoga. Many yoga poses help you to develop the core strength needed to make your feet touch your head. Yoga will also limber up your muscles.
