Featured Exercise: Supine Adductor Stretch

(Supta Baddha Konasana)

This exercise helps to lengthen the inner thigh and groin muscles. It helps to improve energy flow into the pelvic region. It also helps to stimulate abdominal organs and improve digestive mobility. It can help with stress reduction and help relax the central nervous system.

Lie on the floor. Bend your knees and place both feet together, allowing your heels to touch. Slide your feet up closer to the groin or where they feel comfortable. Allow your knees to fall outward. You can use folded up towels or rolls to place on the outside of the knees to make the stretch less intense. Stay in the position, focusing on your diaphragmatic breathing. You should feel a mild to moderate stretch on the inside of your thighs and possibly the groin. You can hold this stretch for as little as 30 seconds or up to 2 minutes depending on your tolerance.

Precautions: Low back pain, knee pain with flexion or groin injuries.
