Half Kneeling Hip Stretch
Classes by Adrian Gaskin • 2m 39s
From standing, kneel down onto one knee, with your opposite knee at a 90° angle in front. The top of your rear foot should be rested on the floor with stability. Tuck in your pelvis to feel a lengthening stretch in the front of your hip, extending up through your torso. The majority of your weight should be grounded through your rear leg, holding the stretch here and feeling your muscles activated and elongated. After finding a base here, begin experimenting with added movements. Try moving your hips in a small circular motion, playing with the stretch in your leg. Reach your arm across your chest, or towards the ceiling, feeling how these motions alter how your muscles respond. Breath throughout this stretch, then repeat on the opposite side. Add cushion below your grounded knee for support as needed.
