In this class, Movement Therapy Guide Shahada Karim teaches you stretches you can do to help relieve tension or tightness in the hip flexors. Sitting for long periods of time can increase tightness at the front of the hips and make it difficult to stand or stretch. No prior yoga experience is necessary for this class. These stretches are perfect for whenever you feel tightness in your thighs or hips. All you need to get started is a yoga mat and comfortable clothing.
