For lower leg and heel stretch  stand about three feet from wall. Keeping feet flat on floor, extend arms forward to touch wall and slowly lean forward, holding stretched position for five seconds. Do it for ten times.


Lower back and butt stretch: Lie on back with legs straight out. Now bring right knee up to chest, pulling knee with hands as high as possible. Hold for ten seconds. Repeat with opposite legs. Do each leg ten times.


Stand feet apart, hands on hips. Rotate head clockwise in full circle for five minutes. Then in reverse direction for five times.
