The hip flexors, the muscles at the front of the hip, can become extremely tight just from sitting, and the kneeling hip flexor stretch against a wall will bring length to the entire area.
- Fold up a towel and place it about eight inches away from a wall. Kneel down and place your left knee on the towel and your toes against the wall.
- Place your right foot on the ground in front of you, and lower your hips down until you feel a stretch in the front of your left hip. Make sure your right knee is directly above your ankle.
- Place your hands on your front knee to help keep your torso straight. Stay here for at least five breaths. Then slowly release and do this stretch on the other side.
