How to: Straddle Stretch
- Begin seated on a yoga mat, extending your legs out to the side. This is your starting position. Inhale. Lengthen your spine to sit up tall and reach one arm towards the ceiling. Exhale. Reach the raised arm over to the other side to lengthen the side of your body, ensuring that both glutes remain on the mat.
- Hold this position for the specified amount of time, breathing deeply throughout. Each time that you exhale, reach further over to your side to increase the stretch. You should continue until you feel tension, but do not push to the point of pain. Repeat this stretch on the other side.
