Loosen up tight hip flexors and build hip mobility after a tiring run with a low lunge, says yoga instructor Elinor Cohen. She recommends holding this and other poses for at least 10 to 15 seconds to soak in all the benefits of the stretch.
Running tends to tighten your hamstrings, says Cohen. The go-to yoga pose to loosen them back up? Half splits. She recommends easing into the position and flexing your extended your foot to get the best stretch possible.
Give your tired outer hips some love with half or double pigeon pose, says Cohen. Bring one shin in line with the top of your mat, and extend the other leg behind you. Remember to breathe, and, if you can, melt further onto the mat as you exhale.
