Going Deep to Open and Release
Focus: Adductors, Groin, Hamstrings, Hip-opening, Twists
We start this practice with some variations of Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations) that include side bending to add space to the body. Through a series of standing and warrior poses, we prepare the inner and outer hips for some deeper postures. As we practice, we want to focus the mind on connection and less about the range of motion of the body. We build our sequence to add in Skandasana (side lunge) and get into the adductors of the inner legs. We move to the floor with some hip-opening, forward folds, and twists which prepare us for the best part of practice: relaxation!
