Half Pancake Stretch

be. Stretching Guide — Posted 30/06/16

A stretch for your hips, groin and legs.

How to

1. Start in a high kneeling position with one leg extended out to the side. Flex the foot and turn your leg outwards so the toes point up to the ceiling. This will encourage lengthening down the back of the leg.

2. Place your hands on the floor in front of you and begin to sit your bottom towards your heel.

3. Slide your hands forwards, lower your head, and feel a lovely stretch down the inside thigh of the straight leg.

Tips

This is neither a regression nor progression from the pancake stretch. Doing a single-leg version allows you to focus all of your attention on one side, especially if you have noticed an asymmetry in the double-leg variation.
