Lie on floor or mat. Bend knees with feet on floor. Cross lower leg over thigh of other leg. Grasp back of thigh of lower leg with both hands.
Pull leg toward torso. Hold stretch. Repeat with opposite leg.
If thigh can not be reached or held on to consider performing Modified Lying Glute Stretch or Towel Lying Glute Stretch. The Lying Glute Stretch should not be confused with Lying Piriformis Stretch in which overlying leg is adducted over far thigh and arms are positioned around both legs.
