Fresh Hips!

Vinyasa Flow | By Tiffany Cruikshank on Aug 12 2012
In this class we'll use some unique sequencing to open up the hips and work deep into the hip joints. This continuous flow will get you going right away with less instruction so you'll have more time to ease into your own personal rhythm. Get in deep and then be on your way with a fresh set of hips! (no props needed)

    That was an incredible class. I feel strong, relaxed and loose. Thank you thank you.
  • Beth Foster     Oct 14th, 2014
    Ouch! That was definitely some unique sequencing. Is it normal for me to feel that in my lower back? Especially during the pyramid pose? Thanks Tiffany. Namaste
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Oct 20th, 2014
      If you're feeling low back pain in pyramid pose then you're probably rounding your back. Try bending your front knee a bit as you wrap the outer hip of that same leg back to help keep the hips square and the stretch in the hamstrings. Ideally what you will feel in that pose is a gentle hamstring stretch in the front leg. Hope that helps Beth, enjoy! :)

      Thanks Maggie! :)
  • Yuna Shin     Jun 13th, 2013
    Sorry, Tiffany, I didn't enjoy this class. My hips seemed locked after the lengthy revolved half moon, getting into parsvottanasana was painful. And the spinning sideways then all the way back with the head down the whole way for a long time left my world spinning for minutes afterwards. Perhaps a warning would have been nice.
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Jun 20th, 2013
      Sorry to hear that Yuna, I hope you find some classes on here you like, we have tons to choose from. :)

  • Sarah-John Smith     Mar 3rd, 2013
    Holy cow. Much needed. I bet, if I did this on a regular basis, I would be a different person.
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Mar 8th, 2013

    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Mar 8th, 2013
      Love it Kelly! :)
  • April Shafer     Feb 5th, 2013
    Loved this!! Any tips on hovering? Just can't get that! Your a true inspiration!!
    • April Shafer     Feb 5th, 2013
      I meant the kick jumps to plank and such.....and to uttanasana.
      • Tiffany Cruikshank     Feb 6th, 2013
        With all of the jumping and hovering the key is the control of and placement of the pelvis. Make sure your pelvis is leading the movement. Play with that for a bit, it still take time and practice though.... xoxo :)
  • Rafael Kr     Jan 31st, 2013

  • Huda Mussa     Nov 29th, 2012
    Queen of therapeutuc hip openers. i have been having a tightness in my inner groin, outer buttock and psoas at the same time in my right hip. This sequece is among the few that alleviates the gripping sensation in my hip joint.
    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Feb 6th, 2013
      Great to hear Huda! :)
  • Marcella C     Nov 18th, 2012

    • Tiffany Cruikshank     Nov 12th, 2012
      Thanks Jennifer, they're from Victoria Keen, I love her pants. Here's the link:
  • Gayle Jann     Oct 23rd, 2012
    Wonderful class. I love you Tiffany!
  • edithe swensen     Oct 10th, 2012
    Tiffany, would you consider a 10 or 15 or 20 minute tutorial just on the half handstand lift and variations? I know there are tutorials on Yogaglo for jumping into handstand and that's not something I'm aspiring to. But I feel close to that half handstand and optimistic that if it were broken down so that there's a focus on the individual pieces, it would become available to me and others enjoying this practice. Thanks - edie
  • Tiffany Cruikshank     Sep 16th, 2012
    Glad it's helping, thanks guys! ;)
  • Katie Green     Sep 14th, 2012
    Wow and secretly an arm strengthener too! Can't wait for the day I can float down from handstand like you do... Sigh x
  • M'Le Leach     Sep 14th, 2012
    This was PERFECT!!! I've been having some tightness in my lower back and nothing was helping, but even after the first pose, it started to release. I love this class! Thank you so much! Have fun in Greece! I so wish I could be there. much love xoxo
  • Anton Mackey     Sep 12th, 2012
    Thanks for the new cues, but I'm not gonna lie, I'd rather be doing this in Greece next week;)
  • Tasja Fox     Sep 9th, 2012
    loved this class, lots of fun and creative. thanx!

  • Loren Collarile     Sep 8th, 2012
    This hit the spot! I love your 45 minute 2/3 flows. They are the perfect balance. More please!
  • Amanda Stanec     Sep 6th, 2012
    Wow! My outer hips are buzzing in a good way. thank you!
  • Jamie Busch     Sep 4th, 2012
