Patricia guides us in a luxurious floor opening sequence that is designed to target the pelvis, hips, and core using a variety of props. We start with pelvic tilts, then explore variations of Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose) and Ananda Balasana (Happy Baby Pose). We continue with Jathara Parivartanasana (Revolved Abdomen Pose) to stimulate the digestive fire. We conclude the practice with a variation of Upavistha Konasana (Wide-Angle Seated Forward Bend). This practice will prepare you for a comfortable and spacious seated meditation.
Usually I don't enjoy the calm and slow instruction but Patricia gives such support behind what she is doing and being a Pilates/Anatomy Geek I loved every minute of this video. Can't wait to watch more
I always get some nuggets of information listening and watching Patricia. I'm so pleased to have access to her teaching. Also I love that she represents the wise ways of moving thoughtfully with listening carefully.
Christy, so great to hear you're finding useful nuggets and appreciating the thoughtful, listening approach. The listening touches in to our deepest layers if we give it a chance. Thank you for tuning in! Love!
What a sweet and juicy sequence - feels like a very kind and leisurely way to wake up the hips, pelvis, and belly without force. Love the touch with the block between the feet in supine baddha konasana - brilliant and sweet.
