Office Pilates–HIP TENSION

If you sit all day at the office your hips can get pretty tight without you even realizing it. Here’s a fun way to relieve some of that tension that feels great and brings out the kid in you.

  • Stand up with your feet hip distance apart. Let your arms fall to your sides or place your hands on your hips.
  • Now make circles with your hips. Think about the motion you would make if you were using a hula hoop and make it bigger. Feel the stretch through the front of your hip joint as your pelvis pushes forward. Circle in one direction 10 times
  • Reverse the direction of your circle. Repeat 10 times or until is stops feeling good or you stop having fun.

Take your time and enjoy it. Remember when you’re done you just have to get back to work. You can do this more than once a day and it will loosen up your hips and lower back.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
