Powerful Vinyasa Hip Opening Sequence
This video offers a hip opening power vinyasa flow yoga class where Doron will present hip openers for advanced students. It contains modifications and options for all levels. This is the practice that Doron does to stay open for the ashtanga third series and it is very efficient deep release for the hips.
If you feel you knees hurting – back off! Many times when the hips are tight, it is the knees that take the toll – especially when the knee is bent such as in half lotus (Ardha Padmasana).
Great to release back pain, tight hips, tight psoas, and emotional blockages. Hips are the connection of upper and lower body, so releasing the hips helps release the flow of energy and movement between back, core, hips and legs. This may be one of the biggest issues of today’s lifestyle, and the source to many issued people do not associate with hips – such as lower back, hamstrings, and sciatica.
45 minutes: full practice, including warm up, standing poses, yin like poses such as pigeon, double pigeon (fire log), and even some backbends. It will take you through a full journey, efficient and powerful with options for all levels, including advanced options such as leg behind the head. No worries, those with less experience in yoga, will still have enough options to practice.
