The Ashtanga Practice Primary Series: Hip Opening

45 min
What You'll Need:
Mat, Blanket, Block
Open feet, open hips. Maria guides us in a practice designed to open and stretch our hips in preparation for Padmasana (Lotus). We begin by opening our feet, and then move into variations of Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) A and B, and standing and seated postures that focus on hip opening, strengthening, and stability. You will feel more grounded, spacious, and centered in your being.

Just excellent. I'm an older ashtangi (57) - started the practice in my 40s. Your inspired cues have reawakened beginner's mind! Thank you!!

I am 75, doing yoga since 20s, and have avoided hip surgery by doing hip openers. This was a good one for me! Thank you.
