Improve Hip Flexibility With Yoga Stretches

Healthy hips should not be underrated. Today more people work in sedentary positions in front of their computer, day in and day out, slowly hardening the muscles in their hip and pelvic zone, eventually leading to back pain and other disturbances. The pelvis has an important role and a big workload: it is the fulcrum between the upper and lower body, as such it needs to be stable and flexible. To have healthy hips the key is regularly stretching the muscles around your pelvis. By not using or flexing these muscles you will be more prone to imbalance.
Any area that's in tension around the pelvis will slowly draw other parts of the body into tension as well. Here are some simple stretches to keep your hips flexible with healthy blood circulation. Start with the butterfly position, knees bent and feet pressed together, use your elbows and forearms to pus your knees toward the ground and remember to breath. The outer hip muscles can be stretched by sitting with your legs outstretched in front of you, then cross the right leg over the left leg, placing the sole of your foot on the ground, then use your hands to pull your right knee towards your left armpit. Finally, stretch your hamstrings by sitting in the hurdlers position with one knee bent and the other leg extended in front of you, bending from the waist and pushing your body forward.
