Deep hip opening and forward bends towards Bhujapidasana and tortoise pose

This is a level 1 class, and can work for beginners.

 

We gradually work more and more deeply into the hips through external rotation, and open the hip flexors at the fronts of the thighs. 

We’ll explore bringing the shoulder to the back of the knee for hip opening and arm balancing culminating in Bhujapidasana, and then continue into seated forward bends towards tortoise pose – Kurmasana.

 

Options and modifications are included.
