Shoulders & Hips Rejoice

Hatha | By Felicia Tomasko on Jan 20 2012
We took requests and what came up? The shoulders and the hips. This Yin/Restorative mash-up combines circular movement of the joints, work with the shoulders in unusual positions (check out funky chicken as the peak pose), hip opening forward folds and a supportive backbend with blocks to allow energy to freely flow through the largest joints of the body. Breathe space into these areas to release tension and allow the heart to radiate and shine!

    Wonderfull class Felicia. Had a really hard core work out yesterday. I felt so sore, so I tried this class. I feel loose again. Thank you so much Felicia.! <3
  • Alexandra Timoteo     Mar 13th, 2014
    Loved this! My shoulder feel loose as a goose (after funky chicken, some poultry humor seemed necessary). Wish there was a bit more of hips in this practise since I have a badly aching hip, but love it for what it is regardless. Thank you Felicia!!
    • Felicia Tomasko     Mar 23rd, 2014
      Dear Alexandra, I'm happy to hear that funky chicken had the desired effect! I can understand the desire for more of something. No matter how long we're on the mat, sometimes it seems like there's not enough time to get to everything! I hope you're able to find an experience of relief in your hips through your relationship with your practice. Thank you for being part of this community. Namaste, Felicia
  • Adele Ryan     Mar 11th, 2014
    lovely class thanks! just did my first one but will be back again soon as my hips and shoulders loved the attention.
    • Felicia Tomasko     Mar 23rd, 2014
      Dear Adele, I'm happy to hear that you liked this class and that your shoulders and hips enjoyed the attention here. Hope to see you again soon online! Namaste, Felicia
  • sarolta kristof     Feb 24th, 2014

    • Felicia Tomasko     Mar 23rd, 2014
      Dear Sarolta, I'm honored that you like my classes and I love to hear that the funky chicken had the desired effects on releasing tension in the upper body. Thank you for your note and for being part of this practice community. Hope to see you again online. Namaste, Felicia

    Dear Theresa, what great relaxation, when you realize you have caught yourself snoring. Glad you enjoyed and hope you continue to find good rest. Felicia
  • Theresa Luu     Feb 4th, 2012
    I caught myself snoring during the cool down......... So relaxed now

    Dear Judith, isn't it great when we're led to just the right class at the right time?! Especially when we're guided by something other than expectations. I'm delighted that this delivered. Hope you had a good sleep in happy baby pose ;-) and that you have the opportunity to return again to this or a similar practice. Thank for your feedback. See you on the path! Felicia
  • Judith Falconer     Jan 30th, 2012
    Felicia, I just feel that I'm led to the right class at the right time...didn't even know your class was just what I needed today but found you all the same. From the heart, I say thank-you. I may sleep in happy baby pose tonight
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 28th, 2012
    Dear Kelly, Plenty of yoga practices are weird! Fortunately, we do them anyway. How sweet that Doofus was able to join in on the Yoga mashup action and glad he could keep you company in tummy rubs for those long forward folds. Currently, I'm finishing up the February issue of LA YOGA, and then I'll be ready for one of those forward folds myself! Have a great weekend and thanks for the note, Felicia
  • Kelly Feenan     Jan 28th, 2012
    Thank you Felicia, that was fun. Funky chicken was...weird! Doofus, my 11 month black lab rescue especially liked the long forward folds. Perfect position for extended tummy rubs! Have a great weekend Kelly
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 22nd, 2012
    Dear Jane, thanks for your note. Just like a rose by any other name still smells as sweet, so a yoga practice we love, no matter the label or box, liberates us fully! See you again on the mat I hope! Felicia
  • Jane M     Jan 22nd, 2012
    Great whatever... Always feel better about things after your classes. Thanks for not keeping it in a box.
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 21st, 2012
    Dear Debbie, thanks for your note. I'll need to rewatch the class in order to give you an appropriate recommendation, so I'll do that. Please tune back in for my answer! Felicia
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 21st, 2012
    Dear Gloria, thanks for the note & for practicing with me. I appreciate the feedback about the class label. Some of my classes are a combination of some yin, some Restorative, some mixed Hatha, so sometimes I have trouble deciding. Hearing people's experiences is always helpful, so thank you for sharing. But overall, thank you for participating! Felicia
  • Gloria      Jan 21st, 2012
    Nice opening.. i love your classes Felicia. Thank you.. but seems like this should be either under Yin or Restorative, no?
  • Deborah Allnutt     Jan 21st, 2012
    Hi Felicia,
    Thank you for this class. I am unable to get into "funky chicken" pose, any suggestions for a modification?

    Debbie
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 21st, 2012
    Dear Sarah, wow...what great feedback! Immglad you enjoyed this class! Hope to see you again practicing on Yogaglo. Thanks for sharing!
  • Sarah Killer     Jan 21st, 2012
    mmmmmmmmmmmmhhh yum yum yum :)
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 20th, 2012
    Dear Dorothy, it doesn't get much better than a light heart! Especially when we've landed. Thanks for sharing. Much love back at you and see you again on the mat, Felicia
  • Dorothy Dawn     Jan 20th, 2012
    My heart feels light again! TY! XOXO
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 20th, 2012
    Dear Kathy, I meant to say I'm glad ;-). Ah, the typos that seem to have a mind of their own. Happy practicing! Felicia
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 20th, 2012
    Dear Kathy, isn't it great when we're looking for something (hip and shoulder practice) and then find it? I'm goad all of us at Yogaglo could be of service to you. Thanks for the note. Absolutely, we'll keep them coming! There's a rich bank of content in the archives that you can use for practice any time and we're always filming new content. See you again on the mat, Felicia
  • Felicia Tomasko     Jan 20th, 2012
    Dear Patricia, many of my classes are a bit of a combination between yin & Hatha, like this one. It makes it challenging sometimes to place a class accurately in a category, but we do the best we can. In any case, the shoulder work from any angle is vitally important. Thanks for sharing your comments & for participating in the class. Felicia
  • Kathy Leahy     Jan 20th, 2012
    Soo good - thank you, Felicia. I was looking for a shoulder and hip class and this was perfect. Keep them coming!
  • Patricia Barrett     Jan 20th, 2012
    Excellent - more yin I think than Hatha but amazing shoulder work - breathing deeply. Thank you!
