One of my favourite types of stretching is active-passive or APS.

This involves the athlete lengthening a muscle to a point of stretch and holding for 6 breaths. Then a stretching strap, towel or person can add external assistance to increase the depth of the stretch. This is then held for another 6 breaths before repeating.
