Myofascial Release Hips


If you have hip pain, rheumatoid arthritis in your hips, poor circulation, weak immune system, heart problems or high blood pressure, this rather simple myofascial yoga series for your hips will be incredibly helpful.

Inspired by the pawanmuktasana series, these yoga exercises and myofascial releases using a soft foam roller are designed to release the hip joint. By bringing awareness to your leg joints, relieving tension in the inner thigh muscles you will free your hips and improve the range of motion in your hip joints.

The yoga exercises for your hips relieves rheumatoid arthritis and slows down its progression. The movements in this series will release the inner thigh and improve the range of motion of the hip joint.

By releasing the muscles of the inner thigh and, improving the range of motion of the hip joint you will be assisted in sitting more comfortably in a cross-legged position.

This series also relieves the fatigue from long hours of standing and physical activity. If you have poor circulation in your legs you will benefit from this series as it relieves tiredness and camps in the legs.

The series helps to improve the circulation of blood and lymph in the body. As a result there is an improved immune function. In addition this series is excellent for people with heart problems and high blood pressure.

This short video offers myofascial release yoga using a soft foam roller. Myo means muscle and fascia refers to the network of connective tissue that surrounds and includes your muscle.

The fascial tissues get misaligned due to trauma, injury, poor movement patterns and emotional stress. Fascia is a system of proprioception. Fascia is rich in nerve endings, so it creates a direct pathway for nerve signals to flow to and from the brain which aids in proprioception, coordination and our ability to control our movements.

In this video we will use a soft foam roller to isolate the myofascia of your hips allowing you to create a neurophysiological response that will enable more range of motion in your hip joint as well as greater ease of movement and less pain.

The soft foam roller is a myofascial release tool that allows you to take your soft tissue care or myofascial release into your own hands. Because seeing a registered massage therapist regularly is expensive, regular use of a soft foam roller is an affordable alternative and offers many of the same benefits of therapeutic massage.

Using the soft foam roller on your hips creates a neuro-physiological response. The myofascial release influences your nervous system which actually governs the baseline tone of your muscle. Because your fascial system is rich in nerve endings, the gentle pressure on fascia communicates that there is no longer need for tension in that area.

In the case of this class, the myofascial release using the soft foam roller creates a neurological response that allows you to have greater range of motion in your hip joint, experience greater ease during movement and less pain.

To unlock the full class as well as a whole series of 8 myofascial release yoga videos for all the joints of your body (including toes, feet ankles, knees, hands and wrists, elbows, shoulders and neck) join our membership community by clicking the link here.
