In this session, we will focus on hip opening and hip mobility. We will start the session off with some standing poses and asymmetric standing forward bends, such as Eka Pada Adho Mukha Svanasana, Parsvottanasana and Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana, to create warm up the legs and start opening up the hips.
Eka Pada Sirsasana will help us consolidate these actions further while also activating our upper body and energising the mind, preparing us for the rest of the session. Then, a few supine postures to activate our core.
After this, we move on to the seated poses where we will focus on extending the spine while creating even more opening and space in the hips. Here, we will do Janu Sirsasana, Triang Mukha Eka Pada Paschimottanasana, Krounchasana, Ardha Baddha Padma Paschimottanasana, Baddha Konasana, Ardha Matsyendrasana,Upavistha Konasana, and Marichyasana.
Finally, we will go through a cooling routine of Halasana, Sarvangasana, and Karna Pidasana before finishing in Savasana. We will incorporate some hip-opening movements in this part of the session too, namely through Eka Pada Sarvangasana and some variations in Halasana.
