Holidays=excessive sitting. Lounging, driving, deadlines that chain you to the dreaded chair… chances are that you have some nagging front hip pain. Take a break and ease into this lunge stretch to find some relief.

TIP: Notice how her right hip is rotated back and her low back is arching. We can get WAY more out of this stretch by squaring and leveling our hips, targeting the hip flexors and quads. Square up by setting your base, then lowering into it. You’ll feel the difference!

Arching=compression in the spine (which can cause more harm than good!)

Engage Pelvic Tilt and Chin-to-Throat (a.k.a. base). You may find it hard to maintain your base as you progress. Notice how such small changes can increase the intensity. You may even find that you’ll have to bring your back knee closer to your front foot, set your base and breathe into it.
