Tight hips, weak back and gluteal muscles are the symptom of our desk-bound modern life. Yogic tradition holds the hips as a storage ground for the life energy. When it is blocked we can store there also our negative feelings and pent-up emotions, especially ones related to control our lives.
Opening the chest builds trust towards our own future, and opening the hips creates space for the birth of new ideas and pathways, gives us access to freedom in the body and in our own unique expression.
Maintaining flexibility and stability in the hips is crucial for lower-back health, not to mention for cultivating overall freedom and ease in our bodies. Since the muscles of the buttocks span the hip joints, and the core muscles hug the spine all around, strengthening and stretching them are crucial to support and create stability for the whole back.
BENEFITS:
• loosens tight hips
• gives stability to the spine
• alleviates back pain
• improves your range of motion and circulation
• restores the pelvic floor
• rejuvenates the organs within the pelvis
• helps/prevents leak pee, symphysis pubis dysfunction … etc.
