Pilates Foam Roller Hip & Leg MassageNov 17, 2019
What to do when you have tight achy hips?
It can be hard to figure out.
If you're like most of the busy women I've taught throughout the years you probably think that your hips will feel better if you just workout harder OR you think that it's best to skip movement when your hips are sore.
Unfortunately pushing through pain or sitting it out can eventually lead to injuries - causing you to become inactive and sedentary with even MORE pain and discomfort.
Fortunately, there is a simple solution that I learned from my teachers decades ago - that you need to add simple and regular release work to feel better and get better results.
Spending just a few minutes throughout the week can help you feel more relaxed, strong, and connected so you can be as active as you want to be - without pain and getting more from your workouts.
I've noticed that the women who remain the most active and productive throughout their lives all include release work in their workout schedule, especially for their hips and lower legs.
After you've done this hip release video you'll notice that your hips and legs will feel more relaxed, less tired, and stronger.
You'll feel more comfortable throughout your day and also feel ready to hike, walk, dance or do any other activity that you love.

P.S. This video uses a foam roller to help you release your hips. If you don't have one you can use a rolling pin to massage the areas while watching the videos. It won't be as effective but it can still help.
If you'd like to get a foam roller I recommend the magic roller by Balanced Body. As a member of their Master Instructor Team I can offer people a discount on all purchases of Balanced Body equipment. Simply click on this link to activate your discount!
The magic roller is a long-lasting roller that doesn't get lumpy really quickly like so many other rollers on the market. It's also made by a quality company that meets my standards for environmental and labor practices.
