When we sit, the hip flexors (located at the very top of our thighs close the hip crease) are held in a constant state of flexion. Our body is not designed to sit for hours and hours, so postures that move the front of the thigh in the opposite direction will help stretch and open this area of the body preventing future pain. All the postures in this sequence are non-weight bearing, which is recommended if you don’t have a consistent flow or experienced yoga practice. Always listen to your body and never force yourself into a position, especially if you’re body is very tight in this particular area. And get up several times a day from your desk and stretch - you’ll be surprised what it will do for you! Recommended props: 2 blankets, 1 bolster, 1 block
