Following on from Bent Knee Fallout we have Femur Circles.

This is good for 

Femur circles are great for releasing tight hips.  This exercise can also help reduce tension through the low back.

How to do Femur Circles

  • Float legs in the air one at a time

  • With hands on top of knees, circle thigh bones in the hip socket
  • Reverse the direction

You can also do this one leg at a time

Things to focus on/challenges 

While performing femur circles, maintain a good connection through your abdominals, and keep the spine long.  Your shoulders should stay relaxed on the mat, and your torso quiet throughout. The pelvis stays in neutral position with this exercise – avoid rocking side to side or tilting the pelvis anteriorly/posteriorly.
