8 Yoga Poses To Stretch Out And Loosen Up Your Tight Hips

5. Psoas Roll

Another form of foam rolling exercise, this is a great technique to work your hip and pelvic region.

  • Lie face down on your forearms and place a roller perpendicularly under your left hip.
  • Bend the left knee in such a way that your heels point upwards.
  • Keep your thigh and inner right knee parallel to the roller.
  • Twist your body to the right, then roll back and forth down your front hip. Repeat this move 10 times.
  • Repeat the same for the other side.

6. Leg Lowers With Resistance Band

You will require a resistance band for this stretching exercise. Here’s how to do it:

  • Sit down on the floor and place the band on the sole of your right foot. Hold the other end of the band with both your hands.
  • Lie back on the floor and lift your both legs up towards the ceiling. Keep it in line with your hips.
  • Lower the leg without the band slowly towards the ground while keeping it straight.
  • Lift the leg up again slowly and repeat it for 10 times.
  • Do the same with the left leg.
