HOW: Begin by lying face up with your arms wrapped around your leg. You can begin with your arms behind your thigh or around your shin. Next, pull your knee into your chest as far as you feel comfortable. Work around an angle that feels good for you, you can bring your leg further out if more comfortable. Placing your hands around your shin will allow for a deeper stretch.
FEEL: You should feel a stretch in the back of your hip with this exercise. You may feel a bit of a stretch into your low back as well.
COMPENSATION: Keep your back flat and neck relaxed while holding your knee up to your chest.
