Do your knees refuse to move even an inch closer to the ground when you sit cross-legged?
Try these 4 quick stretches:
- Take both legs to 90 degrees and swish your weight from back to front – make sure you lean over that front knee. Repeat 8-10 times.
- Hip circles: Come onto all fours, bend your left knee, and slowly move it in a clockwise circle, then switch to a counterclockwise circle. Repeat 8-10 times, then switch over to the other side.
3. Dynamic lunge: Come into a low lunge and shift your weight forward and back. Repeat 8-10 times.
4. Child’s pose: Take the knees wide and bring the chest down, arms stretched out in front of you. Hold for 8-10 breaths.
Homework: Do this quick stretch routine before you get your day started tomorrow and try sitting cross-legged and see how it feels.
