Yoga For Healthy Hips

I have been making an effort to do at least one yoga session every week in my workout rotation.   I find that yoga is not only a good way to get in a wonderful stretch, but that some of the poses are really beneficial to help build strength and increase flexibility for some of the other activities I enjoy… running, tennis, golf. 

I do have problems with my hips so I tend to concentrate my yoga work in this area.  Recently I was given an opportunity to share this infographic and I immediately responded. I love HALF PIGEON POSE and THREAD THE NEEDLE the very most… cannot even get close to doing DOUBLE PIGEON and was thrilled a while back, to be able to finally get into CAMEL POSE and then lay back into this extended stretch for my quads.


Here is the infographic… I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I think it is a great reference!  I wanted to leave you with something helpful as I head off on my vacation…you know I will be practising yoga… see you in a few weeks!

Do you practise yoga?  What is your favorite pose?


  1. I love thread the needle and double pigeon, I can always tell when I slack off and haven't done them for awhile. Have a great vacation!

  2. love all of these, especially half pigeon. I hope you have a blast on your vacation -- safe travels! I'll be stalking you on Instagram! ;)

  3. PIGEON. my hips demand pigeon so many times a day.

  4. Some of these I can't due to my current knee issues but I can do the others & I already do some of them - THX!

  5. I love a good infographic :)

    Although I've never done proper yoga, several of this poses are similar to some of the stretches I do after ballet. (Love the frog one!) I need to loosen my hips and learn to relax them.

    Have a great holiday!


Love it when you leave me a comment!
