4 Yoga Poses for Open Hips

4 Yoga Poses for Open Hips

Yoga isn't just a trendy way to stay in shape. The practice of yoga has many benefits, especially for your hips! 

Hips are an area of the body that tend to hold a lot of stress and tension. Yoga focused on opening up your hips can indirectly release your body in many ways. We recommend trying one of the below poses at least once a day and see how it helps you.

1. Uttanasana (Forward Fold): This pose is good for reducing stress, anxiety, depression, and fatigue. Forward fold is stimulating, especially for your gut, and can help improve digestion. 

2. Supta Baddha Konasana: This is a relaxing pose helping to lower heart rate while still successfully stimulating the hips. 

3. Warrior 1: Warrior 1 assists the body by stimulating the heart and lungs. The hip extensors assist in relief of the lower back, which is a common place to hold a lot of stress. 

4. Warrior Twist: Because this pose is so difficult to hold, it helps to build mental focus. By holding a pose like this, we are challenging our brain to stay present and stretching our body. 

Please consult a yoga teacher for the proper way to navigate these poses.
