Welcome to Big Peak Mondays, weekly deep-dives into the science and stories behind Peak Performance, Wholeness, and Wellness. In today’s session our host Joana Alberto, is joined by Engineer and Certified Yoga Therapist, Anya Arguelles. Together, they discuss the important role our hips play in connecting our lower and upper bodies and how stress can affect healthy hip flexors and muscles, leading to bad posture, pain, and anxiety. They also discuss how yoga can be used to combat the adverse effects of stress that drastically affect the health of our hips.
I never realized how badly stress can affect your hips. I usually think my body in general is stiff because the stress hits my neck and my back, but it’s actually a result of not putting enough movement in my hips. I’m more aware to move my body around more, to stretch all parts of my body.
