It’s day 2 of #weyogistogether 🥳
Let’s connect and learn together 🙏🏼.
Today is all about hip opening and our lead host is @sanae.decker, so make sure you check out her post and those of my other fantastic co hosts too 🤗.
I‘m doing a straddle fold which is one of my go-to hip openers. You can always bend your knees in this one and place pillows underneath. I usually love to prop myself up and give my muscles enough time to ease into the stretch.
When I was new to yoga I used to read like this for about 15 minutes before going to bed and just now I‘m thinking I want to pick that habit back up again 🤓📚. Anybody down to join me? We could be a ‚books & stretches club‘ 😎...
Anyways - hip openers are awesome because: 👌🏼 open hips = more range of movement, better circulation, and more support for the muscles of the back and the spine.
👌🏼 they help with better alignment.
👌🏼 they reduce stress and anxiety – one of the main benefits of hip openers is stretching and strengthening muscles that are directly connected to our stress response.
👌🏼 in yogic tradition it is believed that our hips store emotions and memories, which we are resisting/pushing back. Practicing hip openers creates a physical space in the body that manifests into openness when meeting new challenges, opportunities and ideas. .

I’m aware that my instagram feed has become more of a ‘yoga practise diary’, ‘yoga selfies' or ‘the shapes that lina makes’.. 🧘♀️🤸 So here is another shape that I love - lizard pose to open up those tight hips! I have my back knee lifted so I could shift my weight forward and back to make this an even deeper variation.
But in all honesty, I’m always so happy to receive messages with questions about wellness, yoga or recipes that I make so keep them coming! Instagram is a funny place but there is this wonderful little community, people who are curious about their wellbeing and if you find this content somehow useful - my heart is happy! 🙏🧡
