If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then the pelvis is a mirror to the body. "There are 35 muscles attached to the pelvis so when it's out of whack, everything suffers," says physical therapist Lara Heimann, founder of Yogastream. Unfortunately, with sitting practically a lifestyle requirement these days, the pelvis literally gets crushed.

Do these moves as often as possible to activate, open, lengthen, and stretch for a sublime spine and happier hamstrings.
