Dynamic seated Butterfly stretch

Dynamic Seated Butterfly Stretch

The butterfly stretch is one of the simplest stretches and works on your inner thighs, hips, and groin. It improves your flexibility for a variety of motion sports.

Sit on the floor or mat with your legs folded in front of you in a diamond shape with the soles of your feet together. Sit as upright and tall as possible, engage your abs stabilizing your spine. Keep your head aligned. Place your hands on the top of your feet.

In a controlled and fluid motion, move the legs slightly inward and toward each other and then contract the outside of the thighs to press the legs down back towards the floor, stretching through the inner thighs.

Continue this closing and opening of the legs about 12-15 reps.

  1. Chape,
    I did this stretch when I was in middle school but the PE teacher made into a ballistic stretch rather than a controlled one. I didn’t learn until college while in my exercise science classes, the differences and the right way to do them vs the wrong way we were taught as little tikes. I typically even go slower in movement than your video and sometimes, I don’t move at all, and just hold the pose. I would agree though that is an easy stretch .


    1. Haha! At this point of my life I wonder why physical education is still legal… I mean I would love to meet a good teacher.
      Anyway, I learnt this one from my yoga teacher. And I spent a lot of hours just to get where you watch me 😊 That was a good day, not every day is like that 😅
      Big hug,

      1. Chape,
        Hahaha that is funny! lol. I would love to meet a good one myself. I know it takes education to get the degree to be PE teacher, but then I think.. where did they go wrong? If anything, I learned to run wild in that class, and hardly any discipline and correct ways of doing anything.
        Well you did great :) good job Chape.


      2. Hahaha! I’ve told this before but, I think it’s the same teacher all over the world 🤔
        I remember it usually was soccer for boys and basketball for girls. I liked basketball and girls so I really hated those teachers 😂
        Thank you so much, Shay-lon 😉

      3. Hahahahah! that is funny! lol they might be cloned! lmao.

        You’re welcome Chape
