Wide-Legged Forward Bend
This hip-opening stretch also releases the muscles in your legs, which become tense after sitting all day, Sienna said. It can help soothe lower back pain and tension headaches as well, she told POPSUGAR.
- Stand with your legs wider than your hips with your heels turned out wider than your toes.
- Fold your torso over your legs, pressing into the outsides of your feet and keeping your inner arches lifted.
- To increase the stretch, reach for your ankles and gently draw your chest towards your thighs.
- For a more relaxed position, fold your arms and grab your opposite elbows, letting your body hang down.
- Hold for 30 seconds.
