Squatting is one of the best things we can do to take care of the hip joint, and all the muscles, fascia and tissue surrounding it. Watch the tutorial, then try the classes below that incorporate this pose into a complete practice.
Breathe your way through a slow-moving yoga flow that will help calm your nervous system. Together we focus on feeling supported and grounded even through the many challenging transitions on the mat and in life.
The more you sit, the tighter your hips get, and often, the more your back hurts! So don't just sit there...use your chair to open your hips and release your back with dynamic movement! Whether you can't get down on the floor or you're just looking for some simple movement between zoom sessions...this practice works to open the hips while protecting the knees. These movements also secretly build strength in your hips and core. There is nothing like moving on the breath, starting where you are and feeling the freedom of movement to help you recognize you are not stuck! Learn it at home and take it with you on your next road trip! 2 blocks are helpful, but you can also improvise!
Feel like getting into every area of the body? This flow does just that with hip openers, shoulder openers, core, arm balances and inversions.
