In this instructable, I will show you step by step on how to get into a needle position!:) Enjoy!!

Step 1: Stretch and Warm Up

You should always make sure you stretch and warm up before attempting something advanced like this. Some stretches include:
-Head to your legs
-middle split
-right split
-left split
Hand and foot stretch

Step 2: Stand With Your Feet Parallel

Start with your feet facing forward

Step 3: Lift One Leg Up

Your most flexible leg should be the leg you stand on (left or right) , so lift up your other leg and grab ahold of the back of the knee with your hand.

Step 4: Lift It Up As High As You Can

Still holding your knee, lift your leg up as high as you can bring it to your head.

Step 5: Grab Your Foot With the Other Hand

Now grab your foot with the other hand (still holding on to your knee).

Step 6: Now Straighten Your Leg

Using your hand that is holding your knee, push it straight and bend your back and head backwards to your leg.

Step 7: Done!:)

Now you have a needle:)

    that possition is creeping me out. i couln't do that without breaking half my body lol XD

    Wow, I honestly couldn't wrap my brain around what your body was doing for a minute. It's safe to say that not many people can do this, or will ever be able to do this, but we can dream!

    At my age, none of those positions will ever happen again. But then I couldn't do any of them when I was young either.

    Ohhh you must be elastic, if I try this I will break in two. Very impressive indeed!

    impressive! I've got quite a bit of stretching to do before I try this...
