Standing, put one foot in front of the other, toes pointed up. With hands in the small of your back, bend the opposite knee and hip (not the lower back) until you feel the hamstrings stretch. The upper body comes forward at the hip. Head, neck and back stay in line. Repeat with the other leg.
Holding a wall or chair for support, bring one foot up behind you. Hold at the ankle or leg (not foot) with the same side hand (or towel if you need to). Keeping your knees together as much as possible, pull your leg gently until you feel a stretch along the front of the thigh. Repeat with the other leg.
Stand tall with your feet approximately two shoulder widths apart. Bend the right leg and lower the body, keeping your back straight and using the arms to balance. Lower down only as far as you feel comfortable. You will feel the stretch in the left leg inside thigh. Repeat with the other leg.
