"Yoga is not about touching your toes. It is what you learn on the way down."
The sacral root or the hips are believed to be the base for all human emotions. This is because our hips are not only responsible for supporting our physical movements but also for holding emotional tension and energy. Unreleased emotions can manifest in the hips and cause physical pain, stiffness, and even trauma.
And to release tension and connect with our emotions, practising yoga can be extremely beneficial.
Let's take a look at some of the yoga poses that can help you release tension and energy trapped in your hips:
Baddha Konasana - Also known as the butterfly pose, this asana involves sitting with the soles of your feet together and gently pressing your knees towards the ground.
Malasana - This asana is also called the garland pose and involves squatting down with your feet hip-width apart, toes pointing outwards, and hands in a prayer position.
Gomukhasana - The cow face pose involves sitting cross-legged and stacking one knee on top of the other while reaching your arms behind your back to clasp your fingers.
Ardha Matsyendrasana - This asana is also called the half spinal twist and involves sitting with one leg crossed over the other and twisting your torso towards the bent knee.
So yes dearies, these yoga poses can help you release any trapped energy in your hips and connect with your emotions. And here at Ugees, we recognise this need.
We believe that taking care of your health is as essential as maintaining good hygiene practices. So, do not think much. Take a little stretch and continue to pump, rub and rinse!
