Opening the hips can create an energetic shift. Opening your mind to understanding HIPAA compliance is another thing and is probably as painful as your first Eka Pada Rajakapotonasana. However Yogic tradition holds the hips as a storage ground for negative feelings and pent-up emotions, especially ones related to control in our lives. Hip-opening can also create space for the birth of new ideas and new pathways. So I am hoping that improving your knowledge of HIPAA will take some of the stress out of your compliance obligations.
