Tight hips? Try this quick stretch to loosen them up!

Tight hips are super common. Tightness is caused by muscle imbalances from things like sitting at a desk, driving for a long time, or a workout. It’s important to keep your hips stretched out to relieve lower back pain and pressure on your knees.

Follow along with professional dancer and Ballet Spot instructor Ali in the video below to learn a quick and easy way to loosen your hips. Try this stretching routine during a break at work or before or after a workout. Hopefully this will help you to feel freer and more open as you move throughout your day. You may even feel relief from chronic low back or knee pain!

Join Ali for Ballet Strength on Sundays at 11:00am ET / 8:00am PT and Ballet Strength & Stretch on Thursdays at 6:00pm ET / 3 :00pm PT on Zoom.
