Partner Yoga Pose: Butterfly Pull

Most of us can always use some lower back stretches, and this one called Butterfly Pull stretches your entire spine and opens your hips as well.

  • Partner #1 (blue shirt) sits in Butterfly pose with his heels together and knees out wide.
  • Partner #2 (no shirt) sits with his legs straight facing Partner #1, and places his feet on Partner #1's shins.
  • Both partners hold each other's hands or wrists. Partner #1 folds forward over his feet as Partner #2 leans back, pulling him deeper into the stretch.
  • They hold for five or so deep breaths, making minor adjustments if necessary. Then both partners slowly sit back up and they switch roles.
