I'm guessing if you are reading this post either your hips are stiff, you have problems with them or you want to learn more about the hips!

In Ewald Kliegel's 'Let Your Body Speak' the hips are the generator that makes energies for our goals and intentions. "From here i direct the dance of muscles and joints, here each wave of the breath discharges, and from here i start the prime movers in order to reach our goals in versatile determination. Whatever obstacles are in the way my basic impulse is: 'This also can be overcome!" p44

Your Hips carry the body in a perfect balance and a huge amount of energy and thrust is needed in order to move forward in our intentions and goals. As we grow and move through life challenges are thrown our way, we jump through hurdles and cross many rivers to come to the point right now - reading this post. How has it been for you? Do you have a fear of going forward? Do you fear making major decisions? Or a decision? Is nothing moving forward? Are you holding onto something from years ago that you can't let go of? 

HIPS - "Carries the body in perfect balance. Major thrust in moving forward. fear of going forward in major decisions." Louise Hay,  Heal Your Body.

On a physical level your hips are trying to talk to you and make you listen to something. We have to release this emotion somewhere and somehow. 

The problem with the hips can also be connected to an imbalance within Muladhara Chakra (root chakra). This Chakra is connected to our physical survival, safety and security. Our body needs a way of releasing our cooped up emotional rubbish - say 'HI' to your hips! 

Within this month of February we explore hips. We move through layers of stagnant energy! Shifting as much as we can. Things may come up on the journey but ride the wave, just like you have been doing all these years - But this time the wave will end up somewhere that will make your body and mind feel lighter and brighter, clearer and freer. 

Your yoga is a journey of self discovery. When you get on that mat you allow yourself the permission to let go, to embrace the now. The old stuff is finally allowed to slowly melt away. This may not happen in a week or a month but the more dedication the more you will understand and see how totally special yoga can be!
