Short and Gentle Hip and Low Back Release Practice

Sometimes when you only have a short amount of time to spare, but you are longing for a full practice to stretch your body, hips, and back, you can try this short practice.  It helps to lengthen the key fascia lines of the body that may be causing tightness through the hips and back.  I do this practice every morning and it helps me relieve low back tension as well as tightness in my psoas muscle.  Although I recommend holding each of the three poses for 12 breaths, you can hold for less and get some benefit.  Remember that with each breath, your body lets go of tension.  The breath is magical and each pause between the exhale and inhale, allows your body to process the experience of relaxation and rejuvenation.  If you are experiencing tension in the hips and low back, and want more information, please contact me at the studio.  In the mean time, enjoy this video.
