Yoga is an exercise often used to relieve hip pain and related symptoms. It can also help increase your flexibility, including several stances that stretch your muscles and release tension. To enjoy the benefits of yoga, you should at least do it three times a week.
There are different categories of yoga, and you want to start with hatha yoga, which is suitable for beginners. You can do the stretches and practice your stances at home, but we recommend you have your first sessions with a yoga trainer to ensure you’re doing it right and hitting the right spot.
Some yoga stances that will help you with hip pain include the lizard pose or low lunge and the wheel pose, which stretches your hip flexors. You can also try the boat pose, the butterfly pose, and the seated twitch.
