Glutes: Modified Pigeon
If your hips are tight, this stretch will start to loosen up your glutes and smaller muscles around the back of your hip.
- 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.
