Is hip pain altering your disposition? Disrupting your sleep? Or simply slowing you down in your daily routine? Well, an often neglected yet important hip muscle known as the gluteus medius may need some special attention.

Asymmetrical Uttanasana is a tremendous Yoga Tune Up® stretch on the gluteus medius, tensor fascia latae and biceps femoris muscles. With the use of a prop such as a yoga brick, gravity allows some of the tightest areas of the outer hip and buttock region to stretch without restriction!
