The Best Stretch for Tight Hips

Meet your new favourite lunge

Do you have tight hips no matter how much you stretch them? Maybe you need to try something different!


When we have tight hips, the go-to stretch tends to be a lunge. And while lunges are a great hip stretch, this one stretch up-levels your traditional lunge into just what you need for reducing hip tension.

It's an amazing stretch and the perfect multitasker as it not only stretches your hip flexors but it also gets into all the nooks and crannies around your hip joints. You'll feel chronic hip tension go away as you build strength, mobility and improve your range of motion in your hips. What's not to love with this variation on a lunge? 

When you move in purposeful and helpful ways like this means that your hips will feel better for longer. If you're looking for yoga classes that your hips will love, try our free 7-day trial inside the Heart + Bones online studio!

Enjoy a week of hip-happy classes
