5 yoga moves to help you effectively relieve hip tension!

Hip opening is a necessary practice for almost every Yoga person.

Hip is not only the benchmark of upright body, but also a part of the central part of the body.

Hip exercise can improve sports and life performance, and reduce the probability of sports injury.

Why is the hip tense? Although walking and running can move the hips to some extent, our main daily action is sitting and standing.

Sitting and standing for a long time makes the hip joint fixed in one position.

After a period of time, the range of motion of the hip joint decreases, so the simple cross legged sitting and standing on the ground has become a very difficult thing.
