Improve Flexibility, Stability, Coordination and Health
Yoga Link | Hip Helpers - Harmonizing the Hips from Inside Out exercises the hips from all directions. These techniques free the legs and hips and improve overall flexibility, stability, coordination and health. A perfect complement to your current yoga, dance or fitness practice.
There is a special focus on loosening the psoas, a frequently tight and restricted primary hip flexor muscle. Lengthening and liberating the psoas is key to releasing tension and pain throughout the body because its health directly impacts our posture. The psoas is like a cable that hooks the spine to the legs. It also shares attachments with the diaphragm and large intestine, so it is connected to our physiology and our nervous system in a way that other muscles are not. You wil get better results unwinding other areas of the body if you release the psoas muscles first.

The Yoga Link Collection
Each DVD in the Yoga Link series targets specific regions of our bodies that, according to Jill Miller, tend to be areas of chronic weakness and congestion: "We spend too much time sitting idle at computers and in cars with poor posture. Using Yoga Link's techniques, anyone can create healthy balanced hips, shoulders, and a powerful core to break through the cycle of pain that stems from our everyday habits."
