Sit All Day? Regain Hip Flexor Mobility

Vinyasa Flow | By Jo Tastula on Apr 23 2012
Notice how life requires us to sit for longer and longer periods of time?  This over-sitting can lead to a whole slew of problems including back pain and reduced mobility. This class is dedicated to regaining full mobility in the hip joints and as well as the hip flexor muscles that shorten and tighten while sitting. Starting with core work to switch on the abdominal muscles, we flow through Sun Salutations C (surya namaskara) with deep lunges and lots of movement around the map to activate the legs.  To get into our target area we do both seated hip openers, standing hip openers and supine (lying) hip openers!  Time for meditation, introspection and savasana.

  • Ginny Ginny     Jul 15th, 2012
    Such a beautiful class, Jo. Thankyou so much. I love your very calm energy - somehow you lead us through some challenges asanas, yet your voice helps to make it a breeze to move from pose to pose. By the way, is that an Aussie accent I hear? I'm a yoga teacher in Newcastle Australia, so it's nice to connect with another Aussie online. Thankyou again. Namaste.
    • Jo Tastula     Aug 24th, 2012
      Hi Ginny. Thank you so much for your really beautiful comment. Yes, it is an Aussie accent you hear. My family are from the West and now live in Perth. LOTS of love to you in Newcastle!
