This class targets the hips flexors, a common problem area for many, including runners, athletes, people with desk jobs and those with hyperlordosis. David guides you through a class that builds gradually toward a final series of deep openers for the quads and psoas muscles, starting and finishing with a guided relaxation.

Glute engagement?
Amygatzemeyer 6 days ago

This was an excellent class that really spoke to me- I was able to relax my mind and body and feel great. I was especially drawn to the cue ‘engage your glutes’. It made me realize I don’t typically engage my glutes in lunge. In other sports (running, weight lifting, etc.), I discovered that the emphasis to NOT engage glutes in cobra and septu Banda has made me focus on not engaging glutes and in the long run and lead to some back pain and incorrect form. Do you have a good resource to look through about when to engage glutes in yoga? Thank you!

Heaven indeed!

Niggling tight psoas brought me back to this video and I had forgotten just how wonderful it is! What a lovely relief! Thank you David!

hope the neighbours didn't hear me moaning!

I got a new car that really messed up my hip flexors after driving it for 2 months I felt sooooo tight and tender in psoas even just walking. This hit the area like nothing else....the car is going and this class 2-3 times for a few weeks should have me back on track

Hip Flexor -working toward heaven!
Radlh0 3 months ago

I’m a tennis player and my hip flexors are tight plus I have lower back tightness too. This class was wonderful and made me realise just how tight my hip flexors are. Really liked the pacing and length and think I will make this class a regular as it targets my tight areas. Learnt something doing the downward dog about using elbows as other folk have noted. Thank you David and thank you for Doyogawithme.

A much needed area to target!

A much needed area to target! Thank you David for your great instruction and for allowing the energy to flow through these much used muscles!

a great introduction into Intermediate level
Sair 6 months ago

I've been doing the Beginner level for almost a year and thought I'd give this Gentle Intermediate class a try as my hips flexors have been tight for sometime. It was a great pace, and really got into those tight muscle. I feel great!

Too much "flow" for my liking

Too much "flow" for my liking. I have an injury, so I need to take the time to make sure that I have proper placement. By the time I got into position, it had moved on to the next one. I got the gist of it though, so I paused the video, and took out the plank/ down dog/plank/cobra sequences in between, and kind of did my own thing. I'm a bit sad that this came up under a hatha practice in my search, tbh

Not just the hip flexors, but
jbencke 9 months ago

Not just the hip flexors, but a super practice for my ability to do “sei-za” when visiting neighbors here in Japan (sitting on the heels in Hero’s pose)! With synovial fluid issues in the knees, this pose has been a problem for a long time, but I’m finding that doing this practice regularly is helping me in my battle with RA. Thank you!
