Happy-hips yoga flow (40 mins)

 Our lifestyle tends to be repetitive so if you aren’t regularly stretching, it is likely that tightnesses will occur in certain parts of the body. A common place where people feel stiff is the hip department! It could be where you hold a lot of tension but it is also probably the most noticeable part of the body because you feel it when you walk, stand up and down, tie your shoe-laces etc etc.

Often tight hips bring people to their mat and then when they are there they discover that other areas of the body are also a little tight. The great news is that freeing up those hips is so liberating!

You can stand better, enjoy improved posture, move better and feel more at ease in daily life: what’s not to love?? Below is a lovely hip-opening sequence that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Feel free to pause the video if you want to hold any postures for longer, just rest if any bits feel too tough and join back in when you feel ready 🙂 

What equipment do I need?

A good yoga mat is  great investment if you are considering doing yoga regularly. A couple of blocks and a yoga strap might also come in handy long-term but meanwhile you can always use a small table or a wall to support some of the postures if you need. 

When should I do this sequence?

You can do this sequence at any time of the day 🙂 I love doing hip opening postures first thing in the morning but whenever you have the time is always the best time!  Remember to listen to your body, take your time and most important – have fun on the mat!
