Step 2. Pull both knees up to a ninety-degree angle, with your shins facing the ceiling.

Step 3. Wrap both arms around your knees and pull them towards your chest.

Step 4. Keep the other leg pressed straight against the ground, to create resistance and a stretch in your hip.

Step 5. Allow your hip flexors and back to relax in this recovery position. 

Step 6. Hold for 1 minute and repeat on the other side.
