Is doing a full split on your yoga bucket list? As a certified yoga teacher for over 20 years, these are the nine poses I teach my students who want to learn how to do the splits. These yoga poses focus on opening tight hips and hamstrings. If you practice these poses several times a week, you’ll soon be on your way to mastering this pose.
Be sure to listen to your body and ease into these stretches. Only go far enough to feel a deep stretch — you should never feel pain. Don’t worry if one side feels tighter than the other; that’s totally normal. Notice the progress you make each time you practice these poses, and you’ll get closer to the ground every week.
