Get your stretch on

⭐️Relax into a Gluteal Stretch⭐️

Keep your tailbone heavy - if it lifts away from the floor you might lose the stretch

Let everything go - allow the feeling of the stretch to soften.

Basic Hip Flexor Stretch

Hold for as long as you feel its doing some good. Repeat.

You need to be able to 'tuck' or 'north tilt' your pelvis. If you're struggling with this, then lay on your back with your knees bent. Flatten your low back into the floor. Your pelvis has rolled towards you. You've just done a north tilt of your pelvis.

This is a great way to off set the shortening that occurs in the front of the hip musculature when sitting.. which also might be contributing to any back or hip pain or stiffness you may have.

Take your time.

Adductor Stretch | Hip Opener 

Here I show you how to mobilise the inner thigh and hip. It's great to do following your hip flexor stretch, which I briefly remind you of in the vid 👇

Its another great addition to keep your hips mobile, especially if you sit for prolonged periods of time.

Tight hips can cause other parts of your body to compensate which might lead to pain or discomfort...and we don't want that!

Give them a go, take your time and remember to breathe. 🙏

If you are still struggling with pain and stiffness, you could pop in for an appointment. My question I would ask you.. and your body..is why are those hips tight in the first place? 🤔 There's many possibilities. But yes, sitting is usually the main culprit!
