Tight hips can not only negatively impact the way you walk but also put unnecessary stress on your back and knees. Release tension in your hips and increase your range of motion with Advent: Hip & Healthy. After a brief warm-up involving deep breathing and stretches that loosen up your neck, shoulders, and back, you will flow through three separate series of lunges. Each series will challenge your balance and work your entire body as your move from planks and chest lifts to lunges and other poses—sinking lower into the positions for a deeper hip stretch. The Scriptures and meditations invite you to draw closer to Mary, Jesus’ mother, as you prepare for Christmas.
