Seated Hip Opener Yoga Sequence


Esther Ekhart guides you through a 13 minutes Seated Hip Opener yoga Sequence, which is very beneficial for the hips and the lower back. It will release emotions that are stuck.

The majority of our yoga students spend all day sitting behind a desk and staring at a computer screen. Even those, who don’t have an office job, spend a disproportionate amount of time sitting. All of this sitting leads to some very tight hips. What yoga poses are best for restoring hip health?

Obviously, there are many different types of hip openers, because the hips are ball and socket joints. Therefore, you can give the hips therapeutic work from many different angles. Ask your yoga students to be patient, because some of your students may be very stiff in the hips, while others will be very flexible. In some cases, students become agitated with their progress and this leads to forcing or pushing. The key to progress is patience and the realization that each of us has a unique body.
