It is common these days for people to have stiff hip joints, hip challenges, low back pain or discomfort, and also to suffer from sciatica. Unless related to a birth defect, medical condition or accident, these challenges tend to be connected to how you use or misuse your hip joints in daily life. The way you lean forward to sit down or get up for instance, or when you go all the way down to the floor to pick up something. The way you sit at your computer or dinner table matters. In fact, even within the exceptions made above, the way you use your body daily can enhance or reduce your discomfort or pain level. As we have seen earlier, when you start your head movement in your neck instead of higher where the joint is, your neck accumulates unnecessary tension and no stretches can be efficient long term because, unknowingly,  you keep feeding your neck tension by how you move your head. It is the same when, out of habit, you use your upper back and shoulder blades muscles to do the job required only by your armpits in combination with other natural joints. As a result, tension progressively accumulates in these muscles. Although they can help to relieve tension temporarily, upper back stretches can only go so far in addressing the issue in a sustainable fashion. The tension is being recreated daily by the habitual way you use your body. This is why stretches are helpful mainly if you do them daily or frequently because they focus on reducing symptoms rather than finding and addressing the source of the tension. The same applies to your torso/leg relationship. Let’s see how it works in you so you can be inspired and empowered to make constructive changes leading to sustainable results.
In the movement audio Part 3, you first discover how you usually lean forward from a sitting position, and then you discover aspects of leaning forward that make a huge difference in the quality of any movement including leaning forward. 

You’ll get to experience how upper body and lower body affect each other through the power of intention.
