6 Stretches To Unlock Your Tight Hips

Butterfly Stretch

This stretch is great for the hips and the groin.

  • I think we’ve all tried this stretch at least once in our lives.  First, sit on the ground, bending both knees, and bring your feet together so the bottoms touch (if possible). Lengthen your spine as you use your leg muscles to press your knees down toward the ground.  Relax your shoulders, and then slowly bend forward towards your feet.
  • Remember to keep your spine lengthened as you fold gently forward.
  • Stay here for five breaths and continue bringing your chest towards your feet.  To deepen the stretch, bring your arms out in front of you and try to get your forehead to the mat.  With time and practice, you will be able to get deeper into the stretch.  Getting my forehead to touch the mat is my goal!
