Stretch both legs out in front of the body.
Bend the right leg.

Simultaneously rotate your ankle 10 times clockwise.
Try to relax your foot as much as possible, rotating your foot about the ankle with your left hand.
Repeat 10 times anticlockwise. Repeat the whole process, 10 times clockwise and 10 anticlockwise, with the left foot folded on the right thigh.
