What Can Our Hips Teach Us?
In this class with Jonni-Lyn, we ask ourselves: What can our hips teach us? Can we open and go further, perhaps lifting into an arm balance? Or maybe we need to back off and give ourselves time and space. Through this practice we will start to open our hips with some sun salutations, standing poses and hip openers. We'll also explore an arm balance with these open hips and then move into our final relaxation and short seated meditation.
Thanks for a great class! So true we do not listen to our inner voice enough. "Patience" is what came over me when I first closed my eyes. That will be my mantra for today. Be Well, namaste
Thank you, Jonni-Lynn. Was an amazing class. Yes, itwas a bit faster, but if I kept my chatter quietened down which happened pretty quickly once we practiced Surya namaskar with eyes closed, it flowed perfect. Beautiful ending. You are your own teacher, if you could listen.
This was exactly what I needed a day after acupuncture for my tight hips. Thank you, DYWM and Jonni-Lynn.
I didn't like this class at all. The warm-up part is way too short. It's important not to rush through the "kobras" right in the beginning of the class. Since part of this "in a hurry warm up" is to be done with closed eyes it's even more important to go a bit slow. Unfortunately Jonni-Lyn forgets sides in several of the asanas and the choreography of the hip-asanas lying down are a bit too much, seeing as this is an intermediate class. A yogi showing off feels "in your face suckers" to me... I genuinely feel this class don't belong in this otherwise excellent challenge.
