Most of us sit at our uncomfortable desks 40 hours a week with our legs crossed, staring into a computer screen. If we're lucky, we make it to an early morning or evening yoga class
, but if not, it's still important to take 10 minutes to stretch out every day. Especially, the hips.
Here Are 3 Reasons You Need To Open Those Hips:
1. Most of our emotions, stress and tension are held in the hips and pelvis, creating tightness. When we leave all of this tension there, it only causes stagnation, which creates more stiffness and negativity.
2. Lower back pain can be directly linked to tight hip flexors. Stretching out the hips will ease this pain and create more circulation.
3. Our hips are constantly working! The hips are a ball-and-socket joint (as is the shoulder) used for high mobility and rotation. Whether we're walking, sitting or sleeping, if our hips aren't (as) mobile, it makes daily life harder.
In this video we show you 3 hip openers for beginners, which are super easy to do in the comfort of your own home. Hold each pose for 40 to 60 seconds per side, 7 days per week!
Your hips will thank you!
