Best Recovery Stretches
From Head to Toe: The Ultimate Stretching Guide
Modified Pigeon will bring a big release to tight glutes and hip flexors.
- Kneel on your mat, then bring your right leg behind you. Lean your torso forward, placing your forearms on the mat. Open your left knee outward to the left — your left ankle might need to slide forward, so your pelvis can lower toward the floor.
- Bend your elbows to deepen your stretch.
- Hold for one minute, then switch legs.
- For a deeper stretch, try the full version of yoga's Pigeon pose.
