Practice This Juicy Yin Yoga Sequence to Release Your Tight Hips

Let’s face it, most of us have tight hips. But luckily, Yin Yoga poses are an excellent resource to help release connective tissues in the hips.

The hip joints are a type of synovial joint known as a ball-and-socket. These joints connect the head of the femur or thigh bone (which is the ball) to the acetabulum of the pelvis or hip socket (which is, of course, the socket).

By design, the hip joints are built for stability. The femur sits deep within its socket and is designed for weight bearing. Due to its innate sense of stability, mobility and flexibility of the tissues surrounding the hip joint is not always a guarantee.

Allie Geer

Allie began her practice of yoga in 2006, after she was involved in a traumatic car accident.  She found that alternative medicine, yoga and meditation was an excellent way to handle pain both physically and emotionally.   In 2012 she completed a 200 hour intensive teacher training program at Samahita Retreat Center in Koh Samui, Thailand with Stephen Thomas.  Allie became pregnant in early 2013 at which point she began looking for complementary practices. She completed an 85 hour prenatal training with Sue Elkind. The journey through pregnancy and birth brought her the closest to her practice.  Allie is currently enrolled in the 1000 hour advanced teacher training with Tiffany Cruikshank, founder of Yoga Medicine. Allie specializes in one on one private therapeutic sessions, myofascial release, and pre/post natal yoga. Yoga has become a lifestyle choice for Allie and brings much happiness and joy to her daily life.  It is her hope to be of service and to share this experience with others through her classes, teacher trainings, private sessions, and workshops. Allie currently teaches in Colorado. For more information you can visit her website: www.alliegeeryoga.com
