Editor's Note from Brooke Nisbet: Sitting in a chair all day can tighten your hips. Kino shows us an easy switch of position that will help keep your hips open and your core muscles strong. She shows twotypes of sitting crossed legged and explains why they are actually good for your hips. Happy Hips!
It is the same, but with a slight difference. The emphasis is now not on the gap, but on the turning. The outgoing and ingoing breath make a circle. Remember, these are not two parallel lines. We always think of them as two parallel lines -- breath going in and breath going out...
