Deep and Slow Hip Openers favorite_border

Prenatal - 45m

Teacher: Rachel Brathen

Level: All-Levels

Class type: Hips

Description:

Honor your body, move with ease, and gently move to feel more comfortable in pregnancy as you prepare for birth by opening and creating space in the hips, glutes, and groin.

Starting in a tall seated posture, begin with conscious awareness of the breath, dropping into your body and the practice. As you deepen the breath, you'll make space throughout the entire body, letting go of anything that might be weighing on the mind. As the body softens and the mind becomes quiet, you'll connect inward to honor yourself and the baby before beginning to move. Flow through gentle seated postures to find fluidity in the hips, then transition into longer held, hip-opening poses such as Lizard (Utthan Pristhasana), Half Pigeon (Ardha Kapotasana), and Garland/Squat Pose (Malasana). This class will offer you a sense of full body release both physically and energetically, leaving you feeling light, connected and rejuvenated!


For this class, a blanket and 2 blocks are optional for additional support.
