Tight Hips? Do these 3 Yoga Stretches to Loosen your Hips #hipexererices

Open your flow of energy and meridians that run up and down your body to feel oh so good!

Did you know you have over 20 muscles that cross the hip?

A collection of inner thigh muscles known as the adductors, the collection of outer thigh muscles known as the abductors, the hip flexors in front, deep lateral rotators in back, and more. 

Tight hips affect your ability to simply bend over to pick up something up from the floor.

Hip openers improve your range of motion and circulation and decreased back pain. Hip stretches also keep the joints and muscles in good alignment.

Yogic tradition holds the hips as a storage ground for negative feelings and unaddressed emotions. Hip-opening can create space for the birth of new ideas. Loosening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well.

🌹Aging with Grace Yoga for All Ages ©

The gifts of growing older are many: maturity, grace, wisdom, experience, perspective, and years of happy memories.

As we age, we may experience challenges such as joint stress, osteoarthritis, memory decline, loss of balance, find it difficult reaching to the floor to pick up a sock or other physical limitations. All of this affects your sense of self and positive outlook.

Yoga has a wide array of physical and mental health benefits that enhance a good quality of life, especially as we age.

Great way to start your week!
