Moves to relieve tension in your pelvis.
Tension and stress get stored in the body resulting tight body parts. In yoga, the hips are thought to be the baggage center for negative emotions. So releasing them may be an intense experience for some people. But open hips can increase your mobility and may help ease some types of lower back pain. So breathe deeply through the poses and you will be rewarded.
If you feel any pain or discomfort, check your alignment, back off a little, or stop.
