Hips and Knees

Please see the cautionary notes on our Bodyworks page before continuing.

Please try the beginners and intermediate exercises first

 

Try this sitting on a bed to begin with, then progress to the floor.

  • Raise the right knee gently onto the chest

  • Hold for 20 seconds and slowly replace

  • Raise the left knee gently onto the chest

  • Hold for 20 seconds and slowly replace

  • Raise the right knee gently onto the chest

  • Raise the left knee gently onto the chest

  • Hold for 20 seconds and slowly replace one, then the other

 

If you have one hip or knee that is stiffer than the other, you may like to use that one a little more.

 

Once you feel comfortable with this, start pointing your ankles before the leg goes back to the floor.  Add 5 seconds for this.
