Find Flexibility and Release Your Tight Hips With 7 Soothing, Hip-Opening YouTube Yoga Classes
When I've been working all day at my desk, my hips are tight. When I've just finished a run, my hips are tight. When I've been lying on the couch all day, my hips are tight. I think you see where I'm going with this. If I'm trying to stay loose and comfortable – and avoid injury during my workouts — my stiff hips need daily stretching.
I love using YouTube for my yoga flows, and when I finally can't take the wound-up tightness in my hips anymore, I head straight for a few of my favourite channels like Yoga With Adriene and Boho Beautiful. The following gentle, hip-releasing flows are appropriate for all levels of experience (and hip tightness). Whichever video you choose, make sure you take your time and embrace the loosening that comes with each relaxing pose. Yogis will often say that we "store emotions" in our hip area, so don't be surprised if you feel a mental and emotional release as well while you're soothing your muscles. Lay out your mat, get comfy, and hit play to release hip tightness, tension, and stress in 25 minutes or less.
