Overview

The butterfly yoga pose is a seated forward bend that targets the hip adductors, or inner thighs. It is a great way to stretch and strengthen these muscles, which can help improve your flexibility and range of motion. To do the butterfly pose, sit on the floor with your legs outstretched in front of you. Bend your knees and bring the soles of your feet together, then let your knees fall open to the sides. Hold onto your shins or ankles and gently pull your knees toward the ground, keeping your back straight. Hold the pose for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then release.
