Our hips help us to bend and lift.
If you have poor hip mobility, the body tends to compensate by employing our back for the task instead!
When we increase our hip movement capability we also improve the flow of the blood to the legs.
The more flexibility and mobility we can maintain in our legs then the more we reduce hip related problems as we age.
I was once told that if you can maintain a young core you can maintain youth throughout your life.

A Simple Breathing Technique
Being a yoga instructor I often encounter people who are very healthy but struggle with what is called diaphragmatic breathing.
When we need oxygen quickly the upper area of our lungs works very hard to provide the blood with the oxygen it requires. However, during this process, we do not utilise the full capacity of our lungs. This is why when I ask people to draw their breath down into their stomachs they find it difficult to relax the muscles enough to let the air in. This simple technique will help you to develop a vital skill that will induce magical changes in your body mind and soul
