Tackle those tight hip flexors with a yoga stretch known as the arching low lunge. This is also a great stretch for your abs and shoulders as well.
- Begin in Downward Facing Dog. Step your right foot forward between your hands, making sure your knee is directly above your ankle. Lower your left knee to the floor.
- Lift your torso and raise your arms straight into the air. Allow your hips to press down toward the floor to increase the stretch in your right hip and left hip flexor. From here, arch back, gazing at the ceiling or toward your hands.
- Stay here for five deep breaths and then repeat this pose with the left knee forward.
