Tight Hips? (Amazing Yoga Teaching Tip)

 

Tight Hips? (Amazing Yoga Teaching Tip)

For tight hips, or not … always consult with your doctor or healthcare provider before beginning any new exercise program.

Tired of the same ‘ol half-bridge pose?

It’s normal to feel that way sometimes because if you’re always doing the same thing you can become complacent.

It happens.

That’s why I’m happy to show you a couple of cool variations of the half-bridge pose I picked up from fitness author, Sean Bartram.

Mr. Bartram uses the term, “peel” which I thought was a great way to explain the goal of the half-bridge … in my opinion, at least.

Here are the guidelines:

1. Lie on your back.

2. Keep your feet as close to your buttocks as long as you’re comfortable.

3. Keep your feet glued to the ground.

4. Move SLOWLY and ONE SEGMENT at a time as you go up and down … in and out of the bridge.

5. Remember your Kegels and your Posterior Pelvic Tilt.

6. Although I’m not demonstrating it, please keep your straight arms by your sides 🙂

Always stop immediately if anything hurts.

You may want to use that data and speak with a movement specialist to help you overcome your “sticking” points. You can practice these variations alone or in a rotation. There are no hard and fast rules … do your best to keep the muscles of your hips balanced … strong and mobile.

And this useful clip will help you refine your half-bridge technique across the board.
