Flexible hips and hamstrings

This yoga practice is designed to work on the flexibility of your hamstrings and hips, especially if you experience some tightness in the lower body. Besides having a lovely practice that will open this part of the body up, you will also learn how to adapt when a pose just doesn't feel right. We practice some supine hip and hamstring openers like Supta Padangusthasana, Thread the Needle pose, a beginner Sun Salutation with lunges to open the quadriceps, a few standing poses finishing with a seated Pigeon and Half Lord of the Fishes pose. A short but relaxing Savasana completes the practice. Props needed: 1 or 2 blankets, 2 blocks and a belt.
