Head to Knee pose or Janu Sirsasana A is one of the most classic and foundational seated asana's because nearly anyone can make a try at it, and it effectively combines both hip opening and forward bending. It is common to emphasize the forward bending aspect and to miss the excellent opportunities to create flexibility and strength in your hip joints. You can create flexibility in your hip joint in Janu A by actively and dynamically externally rotating your thigh bone in the hip socket.
In this video I show you how to do this by creating a pre strategized move that awakens you to the circular action in your hip joint, a frog like gesture that integrates the movement of your leg and the rotation of your hip. Work to create this dynamic hip joint action in your set up before forward bending while keeping your spine upright and your pelvis neutral.
If you have tight hips I also show how to effectively use props to better access your hips and improve your flexibility.
