Disclaimer: If you feel pinching in the front of your hip during pigeon pose, feel free to modify by sitting on a stack of pillows or a yoga block. Alternately, try this pose for the first time with your bent leg on your bed, so you can control how much pressure you put on your hip.
Dr. Sarah Talley explains the hip and pelvic floor connection, how the hips factor in your pelvic health, and how to optimize your hip and pelvic flexibility with this simple stretching routine.
Be prepared to do:
Knee to chest stretch (good for improving general hip flexibility and pelvic floor mobility/ awareness)
