Why is Yoga Good For Glutes & Hips

The beauty of yoga is whole body integration into any area you may be isolating. Because of the nature of yoga integrating breath work into every flow you’ll be connecting all parts of your body into your flow. 

But my personal favorite thing about how yoga is good for glutes and hips is that it not only strengthens this area but also stretches the muscles. In many workouts or isolated movements we can over work one muscle keeping others week or too tight that cause issues in our posture and alignment down the road. Yoga however strives to integrate the whole body into true alignment and fully body strengthening and flexibility. 

Yoga Poses good for Glutes

Table Top Hip Work

As you’ll see in the yoga for glutes above working with the legs in table top is a great place to start for yoga poses for glutes.

Cow Face

Cow face is another great yoga poses for the hips and glutes. This pose is great for stretching out the muscles after working on them. It gets very deep into the piriformis muscles to alleviate tension many of us build up in this area.

Tree Pose

While not in the short flow above tree pose is a great yoga pose for your glutes because it integrates not only gluten engagement but deep inner thigh engagement into the core as you press your foot into your inner thigh. 

Chair Pose

Another great hip bum strengthening yoga pose this also uses your inner thighs to deeply engage and protecting your hips from miss alignment. 

Pro Tip: Make sure to check in for any pelvic tilt arching your low back in chair pose o you may miss the glute activation. 

Piegon or Reclied Piegon

This is another great pose to work out to counter any glute strengthening yoga postures. If traditional pigeon doesn’t work for your body try reclined pigeon.
