Our Four Favorite Stretches For Over Worked and Under Stretched Hips
Below are four of our favorite stretches for dancers with tight external hip rotators (so all dancers over the age of 10)! We recommend you do these stretches 2 – 3x per week to give your hips the love and release they need.
These stretches will target the piriformis along with the remaining 5 deep external hip external rotators. The outer hips (abductors), lateral thigh and lower back.
Performing these stretches regularly will get your hips moving through a healthy range of motion and restore balance. They will work to decrease pain and discomfort in your hips and lower back and even improve turnout…your welcome!
SO what are you waiting for? Roll out your yoga mat, put on some good music and give your hips the love and attention they need!
P.s. Make sure to warm up prior to stretching as well as breathe deep, stay calm and avoid force when doing your stretches. Click here, for more information on how to approach stretching,
