Vajrasana Group Of Yoga Postures

Usually, when we think about opening the hips internal rotation gets forgotten. It either seems to be something that comes so easily it’s boring or is so difficult it can be hard to find enough modifications to access the postures.

To maintain (or gain) healthy movement through the pelvis and legs it is important to include these postures. With some practice, you might be surprised at the difference you feel, particularly in being able to sit more comfortably.

Pay special attention to the knees in this group of poses because forcing before the hips are ready, will twist the knee which can lead to instability or even injury.
