Deep and Slow Hip Openers favorite_border

Prenatal - 45m

Teacher: Rachel Brathen

Level: 1

Class type: Hips


Honor your body and move with ease to prepare for birth! This 45-minute class moves gently and focuses on opening the hips, glutes, and groin for a more comfortable pregnancy. 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, half pigeon, and Malasana squat. This class will offer you a sense of full body release both physically and energetically, leaving you feeling light, connected and rejuvenated!
