6 Best Calf Stretches to Relieve Tight Calves

You can control the intensity of this calves-extension posture. Using your hands to pull on your feet simulates your gait—heel down, toes up.

 Pulling the ball of your foot towards your face and pressing through your heel to stretch your calves is similar to Seated Forward Bend. More targeted relief is found by focusing on one leg. 

A more targeted stretch in the straightened leg is achieved by pedalling out your feet in Downward-Facing Dog.

The planted leg's extra weight will deeply stretch and lengthen the grounded calf, like pedalling.

Forward folding stretches the entire leg deeply. A tight hamstring may benefit from blocks.

 Again, this pose targets the hamstrings, but keeping your toes pointed upward will stretch your calves

In this position, pressure lengthens. Because it supports your weight, standing on one leg and lowering your hips recruits your calf muscles.
