Hip Flexor Love – Standing Poses – Sometimes Sweet / Sometimes Challenging Vinyasa Yoga Flow

Active people often suffer from tight hip flexors since these muscles fire nearly all day to execute movements like walking, jogging, biking, jumping, handstand-hopping, playing soccer, basketball, surfing… you get the idea. When the hip flexors are tight, the lower back can get cranky, so working regular hip flexor stretches and psoas releases into your daily routine can give you relief from chronic pulling at the lumbar spine.

This practice jumps right in with Downward Facing Dog. It begins relatively slowly, with gentle Cobras and Child’s Pose and manageable early sequencing. It does jump into a pretty challenging sequence about two-thirds of the way in with Side Plank and Visvamitrasana variations that could frustrate those whose practice does not include those postures.

We do poses like Low Lunge, Low Lunge with a quadriceps stretch, Bekasana variation, Mermaid, and Dancer to target the front hip crease. For a deeper opening, pause the video at select moments and hold for two minutes.

As always, tune into what’s happening in your body: If a pose or sequence isn’t quite working for you, make an attempt and then modify in a way that feels right. It’s always okay to just keep moving through, doing your best. Many people tell me that they try the classes over and over again until they can do every posture. Others tell me that they pause the video to work on certain poses. I love hearing this feedback and I’ve loved meeting some of you on Instagram!

Thank you as always for commenting, sharing, friending, tagging and just generally creating a community around this beautiful, feel-good practice.

A Easy But Fast Way To Lose Weight After 40, 50 ,60

Motivation is what usually keeps people from getting in shape. If you know the right way to do it, exercising is fun! This article will give you tips to keep you motivated and on track to reach your weight loss goals.

Music can help to keep you motivated. The music will get you into a rhythm and get your body moving instinctively. When you get started, you will be able to keep moving for a long time. Many people have found dancing to be a fun and exciting form of exercise. It does not require someone to be overly fit and can serve as great cardio.

Find one or two friends to work out with as this is a great way to stay in shape. Conversations will help you get your mind off your workout. Exercising with a friend is a happy experience that can bring you a lot of satisfaction.

An idea to rev up your exercise routine is to use workout video games. This will help turn your thoughts to playing the game and away from the exercises that you have to do. When your mind is occupied with having fun, then it doesn’t perceive it as exercise, so you will be able to work out longer.

Be sure that the exercise attire you buy is figure flattering. This is a great way to keep yourself motivated in the beginning of a workout routine. All types of workout gear is available these days, and they come in various colors. You can have fun choosing an outfit that looks good and expresses your personality while you work out. Choosing exercise clothes that make you feel good will make you want to work out.

Since exercise routines can get boring quickly, be prepared to change up your routine often. Keeping your workouts fresh is the key to staving off boredom and maintaining your interest. It’s vital to maintain your dedication. If you lose interest in exercise and stop, you are going to lose your momentum. That will make it hard to get started again.

Small rewards at each attained milestone go a long way towards helping you maintain motivation. The reward doesn’t have to be anything very large. It can be as small as a tiny dessert or a new shirt. Whatever form your reward might take, make sure it tickles your fancy and gives you delight. It is important to maintain a high level of motivation as you make progress toward your goal.

Many people think exercise is always a pain, but it can be lots of fun. By implementing some of the advice found in these tips, you can start to make exercising an enjoyable activity.

  2. Stop writing checks to your therapist – [Check Details Here==>https://plus.google.com/u/8/110086446704524205338/posts/SYCJvbCgoJ3 ] you'll no longer have to make those expensive trips to your therapist for them to treat the same old injury or pain over again. By treating the cause, you'll save a small fortune in treatment bills.

    Expanding the base and still peaking taller
    stretching the hips, letting roots dig deeper
    the earth ropes me in as if to hold and smother
    first king pigeon and heart freely surrenders

    In your light Leigha ,boundaries start to sway
    gravity for divine moments gives leeway
    growing closer to myself as i make hay
    Beaming smiles and gratitude to brighten your day

  5. I keep doing this and falling in love with it each time! Thank you Leigha! Oh would love to see more videos!

  6. Thank you so much for putting so much beautiful yoga on You Tube. I've taught yoga for years but really enjoy just playing with some one else's approach and this session is one of my favorites. Namaste.

  7. oh, oh, can you do 1-2-3 videos for periods? i get really tense in my abdomen, hips, and knees when i'm on my period.

  8. i loooooooove your shit. makes it fun and motivating to have a daily practice, rather than mortifyingly, intimidatingly daunting.

  9. Good morning from Scotland. Another beautiful class Leigha with lots packed in! I have never really practised elbow balance. Do you have a tutorial on this? Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  10. I loved this practice. A lot of it isn't yet accessible to me, but I gave everything a go and I look forward to working on improving postures that are a little further away for me.

  11. Lovely practice. Very creative and great cues. I am subscribing! I hope one day to be able to do Ganda Berudhasana! For now I just put one leg up 🙂

  12. Thank you so much Leigha. Your classes are the best. This one was kind of tough for me.

  13. Thank you, definitely loved the eagle down dog to down dog split to low lunge … FELT AHHHMAZING on zee hip flexors. XO

  14. exactly what i needed after a grueling crossfit workout yesterday

  15. leigha wonderful this and other videos u hv uploaded. if I may take liberty for a suggestion, the subtitles are quite often not the correct words and they block the view at times especially when u r doing plank postures. thank u. keep uploading more and more of ur videos. vaishali, Pune, India.

  16. Jess Ess says:

    I did a core yoga first, then added this and a shavasana, made for a real nice complete practise! Sometimes when its one video of an hour I lose interest and stop, but having mix and matches seems to work for me, so thank you!!

    Also, I love how your videos push me to try new things and grow. So much for me to learn on your channel!! Keep it uup :)) Merci!

  17. As a runner and cyclist I am really tight in the hamstrings and quads. This was Amazingly challenging and fun! Thank you!

  18. Dashworthy says:

    Beautiful practice. Thank you darling!

  19. thank you this was amazing

  20. I love the tempo of your videos. Challenging but still with plenty of feel good stretches. Could you maybe do a video on how a beginner should start practicing some of the more advanced moves? For example head stands, chin stands and the splits maybe how to use blocks/walls to help. I'm finding these difficult as I am fairly new to yoga, but I feel I'm ready to start trying! Right now they seem a little impossible (although I did a headstand for like a second hurrah!) Thank you for all the wonderful practices so far!
