Lazy hips and hamstrings practice

This floor sequence for the legs and hips is especially good if you've been standing, sitting or travelling - you can even do it in your bed! We start with some gentle rolling and a twist, before lying down to use the belt to support the movement of the legs in four different directions. With the help of the breath, we inhale to contract the muscles of the leg and exhale to release, perhaps even noticing the movement of the leg closer to the floor. We take a moment to feel the difference between the sides before moving into a peaceful Savasana. This is a nice sequence to help lengthen the hamstrings and 'open' the hips and - due to its grounding qualities - is also a perfect pre-sleep practice. Props: a belt and a blanket to sit on at the beginning, and for Savasana at the end.
