You'll feel this stretch in the outside of your bent hip and even a little bit in your back hip. This one can be tough at first: breathe slowly into the tension and focus on releasing your hip bit by bit.
- From Low Crescent Lunge, place both hands on the floor and heel-toe your front foot to the edge of the mat.
- Slowly lower your front knee to the side, so you're resting on the outside of your flexed foot. Keep your arms straight, pressing your chest forward to increase the stretch.
- If you're more flexible, place your forearms onto the to intensify the stretch even more.
- Hold the pose for 20-30 seconds.
