Hi there. I'm Jackie of Jackie's Yoga Seattle. Today, talking about some yoga poses for hip stretching. So the first thing we'll start with is a half moon pose. So bring the feet together or hip width distance you'll see what's most comfortable. And we are going to start to open up the sides of our hips here. So start that stretch in the hip. You are going to inhale the arms up. Start to bind the fingers together. Just point the fingers up. And as you squeeze to reach up exhale, pull the arm bones in. Inhale reach your chest. And as you exhale you are going to soften over nice and slow. You are going to try to breathe into this whole side of your body. It's connecting to your hip here. As you open up and deepen down nice and slow. Try to even look up to reach your heart open slightly. As you lean down and open inhale to bring yourself back up. And don't forget to do it on both sides. From there I go to a downward facing dog. We are going to go to a side plank. But first we are going to try to engage everything. So nice firm down dog as you inhale roll the spine forward to your high plank position. Keep it all engaged. And as you exhale roll over to the side of your foot. And as you inhale reach up with your arm and over the head here. So you can see how high I'm lifting my hips here. I'm getting that nice even stretch in the side. As you exhale reach down. Come back to your plank. Inhale to the down dog. And start to lift up your leg. Exhale it all the way forward to a pigeon pose. So now we are getting deep into your hip as you walk your back leg back and settle in. Bring the hands to the sides here. And inhale reach your heart up. As you exhale start to slowly walk forward so you can move forward with a long spine. You are going to want to take several breaths here. When you are ready and you've completed it on both sides help yourself to just lean over to your hip. We are going to come to a double pigeon. So all that is is now that you've open your hips you are going to bring your shin forward and try to match it with the other leg. So bring your foot and ankle right over your knee. And your knee right over your foot and ankle. Start to lean back so you are forward onto the sit bones. And again start to bring the fingers to the sides to inhale, reach through the heart. And as you exhale to find the deeper stretch in the sides of your hips you can lengthen forward and down. Maybe even come to rest. Maybe even let the head hang. So to get even more intense if you'd like bring the hands to the heart here. And you are going to come to a twist. So inhale reach and as you exhale you are going to bring your elbow onto the foot. And try to reach your heart open here. Bring the center of your chest to the thumbs and settle in. And as you inhale slowly release to just bring the legs long to release. So the last pose I'm going to have us do is a crow pose upasana. So you are just going to start to lean back into the palms to bring the feet up. You can inhale just press up to start to bring your torso through. And from there you are going to start to squeeze out with the arms. And squeeze in with the knees. I'm being a little overly dramatic here just to prove my point. I'm getting a firm connection of pressing out with the arms and squeezing in with the knees. And then from there try to inhale reach your chest through. So the only thing that has to move is your exhale press the palms down. And then when you are ready you are just going to slowly lift the toes. And once you press the big toes together you are just going to start to squeeze and lengthen your arms. And when you are done just slowly lower down. So those are some yoga poses for some hip stretching. I hope you found they were helpful. And I'm Jackie of Jackie's Yoga Seattle. Thanks.
