Kneeling Hip Flexor Stretch

Step 1

Begin in a kneeling position on a yoga mat. Release your left leg and take one large step forwards so that you are in a low-lunge position, ensuring that your left knee is not further forward than your toes. If it is, then you will need to take a bigger step forward.

Step 2

Keeping your torso upright, push your hips forwards so that you feel a stretch along the front of your right leg.

Step 3

Hold this position for the specified amount of time, breathing deeply throughout. Each time that you exhale, use your abdominals to tuck your pubic bone towards your belly button to increase the stretch. Repeat this stretch on the other side.
