The medial thigh surrounds the groin and extends down to the knee. The muscles, skin, and underlying structures of the medial thigh play an important role in the movement of the hips and the legs. The medial thigh encourages the drainage of lymph nodes and blood circulation. Here is a posture to stretch the medial thigh. The posture also helps the hips and the knees.
☞ Place a chair against a wall and position it at the midpoint of a mat.
☞ Stand in an upright position in front of the chair, approximately two feet away, and around six inches to the left of the mat.
☞ Engage by pulling the kneecaps, rotating the thighs, and lifting the chest and navel.
☞ Elevate your right leg, allow the heel to rest on the chair.
☞ Apply pressure to the heel while extending the toes toward the knee, drawing up the kneecap, and pushing down the base of the thigh.
☞ Gradually lean the upper body forward, grasping the chair with your right hand.
☞ Lengthen the torso without twisting the pelvis.
☞ Maintain this stance for approximately half a minute.
☞ Slowly raise the torso and lower the right leg.
☞ Repeat the same steps on the opposite side.
☞ Complete the sequence twice. Ease into a state of relaxation.
