Earth Day Inspired Yoga Practice

To celebrate the Earth Day we are happy to bring this infographic on Yoga For Healthy Hips. Our hips are made up of 17 muscles to provide stability and balance, and give us range of motion for almost all our daily activities. Not taking care of your hips can be detrimental to your health and create problems such as poor balance, lower back pain, misalignment in lumbar spine, and limited range of motion in the hips and lower back, to name a few. But fear not!

Incorporating 10 simple exercises into your daily routine can greatly reduce your risk of having hip problems. Start with happy baby pose. To begin, lie on your back on a mat and pull your knees to your chest. Place your hands on the outside of your feet, opening your knees wider than your torso. Press your feet into your hands and pull down. Hold this pose for 30 seconds, breathing deeply.


If you find these exercises a little bit challenging and need some guidance, for Toronto folks I highly recommend Studio Blue Yoga that offering a variety of warm yoga classes, suitable for all levels. Another studio I really like is Yoga Tree with five comfortable locations across the GTA with luxury rooms and highly-trained instructors. Happy Earth Day!
