The beauty of short yoga practices is that you can fit them into small pockets of your day much more easily than a full-length yoga practice. This means that you can use those “yoga snacks” as a first line of defense against physical tension – as soon as tension shows up, or even before it happens. For example, if you know that your hips get tight by lunch time, doing some work with your hip flexors mid-morning can prevent it from happening.
This short yoga practice for hip flexors is meant to loosen up your hips by contracting and stretching your hip flexors. This can have a positive effect on your lower back as well, since hip flexor tightness is often connected to lower back pain. The structure of this practice follows the template for short yoga practices that we’ve outlined last week. Doing it several times a week will have a more pronounced compound effect. Please give it a try and let us know how it goes!
