"This is the perfect pose for stretching the spine, hips, and backs of the legs," Aaptiv yoga instructor Jade Alexis told POPSUGAR. It's also a relaxing release for your lower back and groin muscles.
- Begin lying flat on your back. Bend both knees, and hold the outside edges of your flexed feet with your hands. Keep your arms on the outsides of your legs.
- Gently use your upper-body strength to equally press both knees to the floor below your armpits. Keep the back of your head flat against the ground, tucking in your chin and pressing down your lower back.
- Stay here for five deep breaths.
