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.

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

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

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!

Great video. Thank you!

Long rides make my hips super tight. This session is time well invested.

Reaaaally good class! As people are saying here in the comments, I had never put my thoughts on the elbows during facing dog. Thank you!
Obs.: I guess you forgot to stretch the left leg on the last stretching... Anyway, it was an amazing time of my day.

Revelations
Petraathome 11 months ago

Revelation 1: learning to use the glutes to target the hip flexors. Fabulous! Revelation 2: After all these years I finally understand how you are supposed to engage your arms in downward dog: elbows as if they bend back towards the knees/floor AND elbows squeezing in towards each other as if squeezing an imaginary beach ball. Brilliant! I'll have to work on that. Thank you, David. Namaste.

another good one

I always learn something new from David. In this case the way he leads you into a downward dog is wonderful along with the careful instruction on stretching the hip flexors.
