10 of 12
Yoga Pose 4: Open Lizard
What it does:
Stretches hips and hip flexors.
From Downward Facing Dog, move your right hand a few inches to the left and step your right foot next to your right pinky.
Release your left knee to the mat. Exhale as you lower your right knee toward the floor, resting on the outside edge of your right foot.
Gaze up toward the ceiling to increase the stretch in the front of the left thigh, holding for five breaths.
Stay here for at least five breaths, then repeat on the left side.
