• Lie on your back with the head flat on the floor. Bend the knees and place the soles of the feet on the floor.
• Bring the right knee toward the chest. Keeping the hips even, place the right ankle below the left knee with the right knee pointing to the right. Flex the right foot to keep the muscles engaged and protect the knee from strain.
• Lift the left foot off the floor and bring the left knee toward the chest. Bring the hands on either side of the left thigh for support. You should feel a stretch on the outside of the right hip. As you breathe in and out, try to bring both hips parallel.
• Repeat on the other side.
Make it easier: Only go as deep as you need to to feel a gentle stretch.
