Ode to the Hip Joint

Audio yoga practice focussing on the hip joint, 48 minutes. You will need a blanket, mat, and a long strap with buckle/clasp, preferably one of the wider straps.

This is a simple practice focusing on ease in the hip joints in supine, standing and sitting; it is suitable for most students. The sequence works on the premise that there is an intelligence inside the joints that we rarely listen to! You will need familiarity with yoga pose names e.g. Virasana, Supta Padangustasana, Adho Mukha Svanasana, Urdhva Mukha Svanasana, Garudasana, Trikonasana, Ardha Chandrasana, Uttanasana. It can be used as the beginning to a longer practice of inversions and forward bends. The first part of sitting and supine can also be used for a shorter practice to lead into more sitting or restful asana or just because time is limited.
