It’s said that our relationships are stored in our hips. What exactly does that mean? If we have tight hips, are we bad lovers? Do our tight hips tell us something about our ability to communicate and let people in? Perhaps. Or perhaps we run too much or our parents have tight hips. The tighter our hips, the tighter the lower back; with tension amassing in these regions, the psoas is prone to shortening, making it harder to walk, sit, stand, and practice.
