Vertical hip release (video)

This video explores how to relax the hips to allow a bit of bounce, to facilitate movement and absorb forces. As well as being important for sport this is also a great help in everyday life, from helping us to sit down through to walking down stairs and hills. 

This is a movement that I have to practice frequently as I lost it after I injured my knee; you may notice that at the beginning of the video I have a tendency to slide my hips forward rather than dropping downwards, and as the video progresses I am able to correct this.
