How-to: Lie down flat on your back. Lift one knee and bend it toward your shoulder. Keeping the knee bent close to your body, bring the bottom of your foot to face the ceiling, shin perpendicular to the ground. Hold your foot with one or both hands, allowing the knee to drop outside your body toward the floor.
Tips: You’ll get the best muscle release when you let your whole body open up with your breath, so don’t use a lot of effort to pull your knee down. The weight of your arms plus relaxing as you exhale is enough.
Benefits: Opens the hips and top fronts of thighs.
