Hanuman Hips

40 min - Practice


Jules, with the help of Chelsea, leads us through a series of prep poses to strengthen the hip flexors before coming into Hanumanasa (Monkey Pose). With the support of props, we explore and develop the strength of the legs. We close our practice with restorative postures before finding a relaxing Savasana (Corpse Pose).

My hips felt the best they've ever felt pre and post hanuman. The strengthening version of anjaneasana is my new favorite.
My sister said the same thing when I first taught a variation of this class. So I decided share it with my Yoga Anytime peeps. :)
Hi Jules Mitchell , Wondering if you could clarify the muscular actions for the cues you are giving. When “pulling the front leg in toward center” is the intention an isometric contraction of the hip flexors? And conversely the cue to “extend the back leg away from center”, is that isometric hamstring contraction?
holy moley
