If you’re new to yoga, you may not have heard of ‘hip openers’ and how they can release stored emotions in a very powerful and sometimes expressive way. Yogic tradition says that the hips are a storage ground for negative feelings and pent-up emotions, especially ones related to control in our lives.

Releasing the hips can not only be beneficial for the mind but are also integral to improving your yoga practice as many poses require the flexibility that stems from the hips.
