Hip Openers Day 8

Hip Opening Challenge Day 8!

As we continue on your hips should be feeling a lot better than when you started. Yay for progress!

Today our pose is a low lunge. Low lunges are amazing! They really get into those hip flexors that can get tight from sitting all day. This is another favorite of mine. And I hope it becomes a favorite of yours as well.

Have you done a low lunge before? If not follow these instructions:

Low Lunge

1. Come to the top of your mat

2. Step your right foot back, and come onto the ball of your right foot

3. Left leg- bend knee so it is stacked on top of the ankle and there is a 90 degree angle

4. Gently bring the right knee onto your mat and hinge slightly forward

5. Hold arms up overhead with palms facing one another; on either side of your head

6. Relax the shoulders away from the ears

How do you feel now that your hip flexors are stretched? Let me know below:
