March MATness Day 4: Leg Circles

The thing with the One Leg Circle, or Leg Circles, is that it’s not actually about the circle or the leg.  It’s about the hip socket.  When you change the focus from circling the leg around to reaching out of the hip socket, you get benefits all around.

Today’s cue is “strings attached.”  Imagine a string tied to the big toe of the circling leg.  Now imagine someone at the other end of that string pulling it taut.  As you make your way around the circle, imagine you must reach with that big toe as far as possible into the string, towards the person pulling.  Reach to the point of creating space in your hip socket as your leg travels around, lubricating the joint as it goes.
