I want to become a yogi. I have done yoga before and really loved it but never really stuck with it. This summer I WILL stick to it! I am registering at a yoga studio and going at least 5 times a week. I want to be the type of person that makes people say “oh jenny? yeah she does yoga” I know its strange but I am determined :)
Humans aren’t build to sit all day. Nor are we built for the kinds of repetitive, small movements that so much of today’s specialized work demands. Our bodies crave big, varied movements that originate at the core of our body. Imbalance comes when we spend all day doing small, repetitive actions like typing, scanning groceries, flipping burgers or operating a computer mouse.

There are a number of benefits to stretching out your hips! Agile hips can improve circulation in your legs, ease back pain, and help your knees. Although, what you might not already know, is that your hips hold onto a lot of negative energy and emotions: such as sadness, guilt, and fear.
Anything that we don’t want to deal with in our lives we put away in our hips, so it’s important to stretch them out, as well as move prana (life force/energy) to this area. Our pranayama is our breath work.
The following is a list of excellent hip opening asanas with links to how to get into the postures. If you are practicing at home, make sure to warm up with a few sun salutations before moving into the asanas.
Challenge yourself with yoga!
