Start with one leg in front of the other, with the ankle of your front leg directly blow your front knee. The other knee is resting on the floor. Place your hands on top of each other on your thigh, just above your knee.
To stretch the front of your hip and thigh, straighten your arms to keep your upper body upright, as you lower the front of your hip downward. This is an excellent stretch for the front of the hip (iliopsoas) and good for your lower back area. Hold for 10 – 15 seconds. Repeat for other side.
