Yoga Guide: Yoga for the hips! (New post up on sassy-yogi.com!)

Hip flexibility is something that is so important but yet so overlooked in our daily lives. Our daily routines can create a lot of tension in our hip joints without us even realising it. 

Therefore, today’s practice is a very yin style of practice, that can help to gradually open up our hips, gain greater range of motion, and help to prevent injuries!

Check out the 10 asanas and their detailed write-up here!

Hi everyone! I recently posted a Side-Split, and was asked how to enter the unusual pose. It’s normally done standing up, so the mat version is tricky to envision at first. So, here’s a photo tutorial :) Stay safe and enjoy this deep shoulder, hamstrings, and hip-opening stretch. I’ve seen a variation that includes binding your hands behind, just like Bird of Paradise — go as far as you feel confident and listen to your body xx
