Daily sequence for miscellaneous hip and groin opening poses

A nice short session of miscellaneous poses focusing on hip and groin opening. Good variation of poses, suitable for all levels.

Daily sequence for miscellaneous hip and groin opening poses

Pixie leads you through a sequence of miscellaneous poses with the aim of bringing opening to the hip and groin and lengthening the hamstrings. A good short sequence for when you are shorter on time. Return to this as often as you like!

We begin in Supta Baddha Konasana and Simple Crossleg Forwards with head supported. Come up to standing and move to Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana 1 with wall support. We place the hands to the wall and step into Adho Mukha Svanasana, raising one leg at a time.

Then comes Full Arm Balance before moving into Utthita Trikonasana and Ardha Chandrasana with the foot to the wall.

Lying on your mat we move into Supta Padangusthasana 1 and 2 then move to sitting. We start in Virasana then move the arms to Parvatasana before transitioning to Ubhaya Padangusthasana.

We return to Adho Mukha Svanasana (dogpose) before resting down in Virasana Forwards. To finish, we will move into 3 variations with legs up the wall and then a quiet Savasana.
