Although ALL of my classes are Vinyasa (unless specifically noted as a different style, like Rebecca’s Ghosh), the following classes have a focus of Hip Openers.

Vinyasa Yoga with IT band stretching

Runners, cyclists, hikers: this is for you. By request, this vinyasa class has a focus on stretching the IT band (runs along the outside of the your thigh, starting at your pelvis and connects [...]

Vinyasa with extra hip mobility and strength work

September 19th, 2021|

Mmmm... raise your hand if you love working those hips! (crickets) Ok, me either, but for those of us that do a lot of repetitive forward to back movements like running, hiking, and cycling, [...]

Vinyasa with Extra Hip / Back Love

August 4th, 2021|

We spend a little extra time working on low back stretches and hip opening in this class. It's still a challenging vinyasa class, but we start a little slower, exploring mobility. [...]

Hip Opening Vinyasa

July 18th, 2021|

This is another challenging class (grab your hand towel, it's a sweaty one) and we really work on getting into those hips. We build up chair figure fours until we land in our flying [...]

Working toward Bird of Paradise

Move, move, move

April 28th, 2021|

Lots of Booty + Working Toward Grasshopper

Open Those Hip Flexors

December 30th, 2020|

Often I take requests before live class. I love addressing students' issues in real time. After all, yoga is therapy! Well, this one was for me. Yoga is very good at stretching out hamstrings. [...]

Slow hip opening to 8 angle pose

December 18th, 2020|

Through (too many!) figure 4 chairs and long standing pose holds, we really get into those hips. This is the kind of practices that challenges your mental fortitude as much as your physical strength. [...]

Figure 4s and Hip Openers

October 28th, 2020|

We get into figure 4s today and work on hip opening. This is a slower class this time. We'll marinate in those figure 4s and hopefully make some progress. [...]

HIP OPENERS! Working towards LBH (Leg Behind the Head)

September 25th, 2020|

There are few things a yoga teacher can say that scares students more than "leg behind the head," but don't be scared. You might be surprised at how close you are and how accessible it [...]
