Hip Stretches


This stretch provides great relief for tension in the hips. Using the front leg for support, bend the knee at a 90 degree angle and align it carefully over the ankle with your thigh in a horizontal position.  Place the back leg as far behind you as possible, leaning forward on your toes.  Now drop your weight so you feel a stretch across the back hip, extending down your leg.  Be careful not to lean too far forward (knee in front of your ankle) or you will place added—and unneeded—stress on your knees.
