Forward Bends and Hip-Opening Poses for Intermediate and Advanced Students

Iyengar yoga class description

This is an intermediate to advanced level live class focussing on using forward bends to open up the hips. Today, we continue working on the separation between the thigh and the pelvis and on getting length through the side of the hip. This will help strengthen the foundations necessary to take your yoga practice to a new level: improving resilience, flexibility, and stamina.

Live classes like this one allow you to follow along with real sessions every week. It’s just like being in a real class.

Follow student adjustments, detailed instructions from your teacher, and a camera angle which allows you to get a new perspective on how some of the key asanas are performed.

Keeping up with live classes on top of performing your regular routine at home will help you gain a deeper understanding of each pose and see which aspects of your practice might need to be adjusted to make for a smoother progression.
