Brigette Williams of Living Balanced walked through two stretch options: Child’s Pose and the Mermaid Stretch.

She says they’re a great way to stretch out the hip flexors, side body, back, arms, and glutes.

The Mermaid Stretch strengthens muscles that protect your joints. Williams suggests doing 10 reps on each side added into any workout routine.

Williams says Child’s Pose can help you better understand diaphragmatic breathing. In Child’s Pose, she says to do 5-10 breaths in each position.
