This exercise is recuperative and intended to create fluidity in the hip socket and release in the low spine.
To do this exercise you will need a mat. Start by lying on your back and hug your knees to your chest. Place one hand on each knee and gently begin circling the knees to the right. Let your breathing continue through the movement, and feel the ease in your low back. After about five repetitions begin circling the leg in the other direction.
Things to think about:
This exercise should feel easy, as you are circling your thighs you want to be sure that your arms are doing most of the work.
Long deep breaths will increase release in the low back.
