Here’s an Easy Exercise That Will Help You Maintain and Regain Hip Flexibility


Moving your hips is one of the best ways to maintain and, yes, even regain hip flexibility—and you don’t need tedious, complicated moves either.

The exercise you’ll learn in today’s video is one of my favorites for the hips.

This move is excellent for the muscles and soft tissue on the outside of your hips and legs, and it’s also ideal for the hip socket.

I love this one so much that it’s included as one of the five ‘Every-Day’ exercises I recommend inside the Pilates Tonic Online (PTO) membership.

After you check it out, I’d love to hear how it goes. Let me know in the comments below.

Happy hip gliding,

  1. Hi Sydney,
    I tried the hip glide again and it really hits all my muscles, tendond, and cartlidge that need attention. Hamstrings, hips, ankles, shins, and my sacrum and evens out my coccyx. Do you have any more simple ideas on stretches and exercises to do whenever throughout the day?
    Thank you so much!

  2. What an instantaneous relief it brings to hip pain! Thank you for sharing!
    Can you please advise me regarding a right knee issue when doing the Cobblers pose? there seems to form a softness on the right side of the knee that feels like a sponge.

    1. Thanks for sharing, Jacoba! I’m thrilled the Hip Glides were helpful! I can’t give specific advice for your knee question, but sometimes swelling in the knee can feel “spongey,” and the Cobbler’s pose might make it more noticeable.
