Relieve Hip Tension, Reduce Pain, & Improve Flexibility in One Effective Exercise

There is a fantastic stretch for alleviating tightness in the hips called the Figure Four.

I love a lot about this move, but my favorite thing is the number of ways you can do it.

You can practice it sitting in a chair or on the floor, standing up, or lying down. 

And inside each position, there are countless variations, each bringing relief and flexibility to your body.

Today, I’ll show you a version lying down—which means you can do this one from the comfort of your bed!

What I love about that is you can easily do this exercise twice a day: once before getting up in the morning and then again at night before going to sleep.

When you connect an exercise to something you’re already doing, it makes it much easier to fit into your day and helps you remember to do it.

Give it a try; I think you’ll feel a positive difference.

And if you do, I’d love to know how it goes! You can reply to this email or leave a comment below and tell me.
