Quick Reference

An exercise which stretches the connective tissue around the pelvis, the hip flexors, and the muscles on the inside of the thighs (figure 14). The exercise is reputed to prevent some types of menstrual disorders and to be useful in relieving menstrual cramps.

▪ Stand upright with your left side facing a wall. Place your left forearm and elbow against the wall at shoulder height. Tilt your pelvis backwards and tighten your buttock and abdominal muscles. Place your right hand on your hip and push your hips towards the wall. Then, without twisting, push with your hips forwards and sideways (at an angle of 45 degrees). Hold the position for a few seconds; return to the starting position and repeat on the opposite side.
