How to: Hip Rotation
- Starting on all fours on a yoga mat, ensure that your knees are below your hips and your hands are below your shoulders. Set your spine in a neutral position and draw your shoulder blades down and back. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Release and elevate your right leg out to the side, ensuring that your hips and shoulders remain parallel to (in line with) the floor. At the same time, extend your right knee and hip to straighten your right leg, pointing your leg directly behind you.
- Exhale. Lower your right leg and bend your right knee to return to the starting position. Complete half of the specified repetitions on the same side, before repeating the remaining repetitions on the other side.
