Hello Alana Mitnick :

Firstly, Alana this was a great morning routine for me. I am searching all your yin videos with hip stretches. Thank you!!

I have a question about opening the hips, my right hip feels very tight and it wants to rotate outward toward the right. (wide child's pose is painful, goddess pose is not) There does not seem to be balance between the left and right hip, what stretches can I do to reset the balance between my two hips?
Hi Carol! Thank you for your question. Can you tell me a bit more about the imbalance you feel, and for how long have you been feeling this? What do you notice with internal rotation... for example in Bridge Pose or Chair Pose? These are symmetrical shapes that focus on strengthening and stabilizing.

As a rule of thumb, pain is real and is to be avoided. As you approach stretching your right hip, can you practice staying "in front" of the pain, or rather, practicing pausing before you feel pain? I would avoid Wide Childs for now, and perhaps find a similar shape on your back with knees into chest. Please feel free to send me a private message in the forum. Warmly, Alana
