There’s a yoga pose for healing your hips that’s so powerful it’s almost like magic.

You can watch the video of how to use double belt traction for FREE at this link. Just scroll down to number 46, double belt traction for your hips.

Why is this exercise so powerful?

When you traction your body, you literally create space in your joints. Many of us spend so much time sitting that we develop ultra tight hips. There are six ranges of motion in your hips. Double belt traction for your hips creates the space that allows you to restore your natural mobility.

Let me break down for you how to do this:

Step One. Get two yoga belts and make a big loop in one of them.

Step Two. Lie on the ground. Put the loop around the ball of one foot and the other end of the loop around your opposite hip.

Step Three. Take the tail end of the strap and pull tight to traction your hip.

Step Four. Put the second strap on the ball of your opposite foot. Straighten both legs. Push out against the strap on the ball of your foot. Tighten the knee cap and flex the quadriceps of the leg you are stretching to accelerate the stretch in your hamstrings.  Flex both feet. Make sure you are pulling evenly on the two sides of the foot. Remember to breathe! I like to wrap my hands around each side of the strap so that my arms can relax while I’m stretching.

Step Five. Hold this position for at least one minute. Then switch sides. If you really want to change your life, hold this position for five minutes each side.
