What Can Our Hips Teach Us?

Intermediate III

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.

love this class so much, thank you so much for adding more Intermediate III+ content and making it about getting deep, not just moving fast. every part of my body feels good, not just my hips. the only thing i should have done is just a short warmup/breathing/stretch before jumping straight into the sun salutations, but it was so great to get warm and move fast then slow down for the rest of the class

Oh my goodness!! Thank you so much. This comment just made my day! I love this practice and sometimes feel a bit awkward teaching on camera but this practice of yoga has helped me so much. And if that somehow gets through the screen to you, then what else can we ask for? Thank you again.

Warmly
Jonni-Lyn

Jonn-Lynn i I always appreciate how you acknowledge the roots of this practice coming from India and give thanks to that. Would love to see more of that. Your thoughtfulness and encouragement to follow our inner voice is very supportive and genuine. This class was lovely and allowed for some very deep hip and hamstring opening. it also released something in my lower back.

Thank you so much for your comment. I think sometimes here in the west, we forget where yoga comes from and what it means. And it just sells it short, you know? I am very grateful for my teachers and wouldn't be here teaching without them and their teachers. I'm so glad that you are following your inner voice and feel supported. That fills my heart!

Warmly
