What kinds of stretches do you do? Which ones are good for lower back pain and tight hips?

Sofia Jenkins
Sit on the floor with your legs out in front of you. Cross one leg over the other, with your foot pressed against the floor next to your knee of the leg still stretched out on the floor. Turn your torso toward your hip, the side of your bent leg.

standing forward told is my favorite. I bend over and let myself just hang. try to keep your back flat and it's okay if your knees bend! every exhale, I try to relax a bit more into it. it helps a lot. it's also a good time to meditate and have a quiet moment!

1. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor. Raise right foot and place your ankle on your left knee. Lean slowly towards your right knee. Stop when you feel a good stretch. Hold for 10 seconds. Push a little further into the stretch and hold for 20 seconds. Repeat with your left leg. (If this is too painful you can stand in front of a stool that is just below hip height. Place your right leg on the stool Indian style and follow the directions above.)

2. Lay flat on your back with your arms outstretched in a t shape. Keeping your left leg straight, bend your right knee at a 90 degree angle and rotate your bottom half trying to touch your knee to the floor. If you are tight you probably can’t touch the floor, so just push until you feel a good stretch. Hold for 10 seconds. Push a little further into the stretch and hold for 20 seconds. Repeat with your left leg.

3. Still on the floor, lay on you stomach with the tops of your feet against the floor. Lift your toso with your elbows under your shoulders and your hands and forearms flat on the floor. Your head should be up straight and facing forward. You can deepen the stretch by extending your arms.

I do yoga so for the minute stretch I usually do some lower back work, my arms and hips. Simple to do at my desk and easy that I don’t want skip it.

I do a few basic yoga stretches. Downward dog for my Achilles, peddle my feet while there for hips but I struggle to find an exercise for tight shoulders. Do you have one?
