Hip Opening Yoga Flow – Moderate Level: Breathe Ease & Space into Your Emotional Seat

(Scroll all the way down for a promo code for 15% off storewide at YogaPantsPro.com)


Our hips do so much work for us all day every day, it’s no wonder we experience their opening as an emotionally wrought unfolding. This class is a safe, open-level Vinyasa flow designed to bring responsible heat into the hips before exploring their full range of motion. Some yoga experience is helpful. Prop suggestions and modifications are offered.

We begin with an intention and seated Ujjayi breathing before we move into hip-warming and ultimately hip-opening sequences. Our standing poses call for work in the supporting structures of our hips, from the hip flexors to the external rotators to the glutes to the adductors. When the body is sufficiently warm, we move into powerful but sweet seated shapes that get into every nook and cranny of the hips! In the latter half, emphasis is on opening the outer and inner hips in a way that feels deep but restorative.

This class is great for athletes and anyone looking to feel more comfort in Lotus position.

As always, please share your requests and feedback. I LOVE hearing from you, and I really do design my classes based on your comments. I’m blown away daily by the atmosphere of kindness and mutual support in my comment feed — thank you!

Be Love! Stay in touch 🙂

Shapely Ideas to Make You Fit

The term fitness in fact includes many different main concepts. These are workout, diet and overall well being. You are able to not simply give attention to one of these areas while disregarding the others and plan to be totally in shape. This information will present you with some ideas on how to include the 3 subjects and become within the finest form of your life.

Improve your action levels by not implementing the straightforward paths on your working day. All of us have problems compressing workout routines in a stressful routine, so improve your movements over the course of your normal working day. Instead of vehicle parking nearby the entry ways of the store, park following the good deal and go walking. Stay away from elevators and take the steps anytime you can.

If you make a number of small adjustments for your counter demanding routing, you can target different parts of the body. To focus on your chest area muscle tissues, attempt to squash the bar inward. You are able to change the main objective for your triceps by executing close-hold representatives while compressing the bar from you or outward.


  1. This video was amazing! Thank you! I have been going to physical therapy dealing with tight pelvic floor muscles and have been in search of some good hip opening yoga to help. My hips have never felt so open. I hope that this will help me on my healing, I think it will! Thank you.

  2. Even better second time around!

  3. Annie Tsao says:

    Thank you, its wonderful.

  4. I absolutely loved this class Leigha.  I found places and spaces of tightness that I have tried to shift for years just from doing something slightly different in the poses/shapes that you offered and playing around with them.  Thank you.  Love your creativity as always.

  5. It’s impossible to solve the problem of joint pain without taking any surgery operation in this era. But I was surprised that still now [Check Details Here==>https://plus.google.com/u/8/110086446704524205338/posts/SYCJvbCgoJ3 ]   have some real method to solve this problem by doing some simple exercise like Ricks way. And so much great doctor support this plan 100% perfectly like Dr Alan Jenks.

    He opened his hips and the sun rose.
    the warrior humbled, and life flowed
    reclined marichasana is an incredible hold
    he lotusd' up and the skies rained gold

    With words some thoughts are best unsaid
    so…joined palms and bowed head
    Sending love all the way 'ya
    Thanks a mighty mill lovely Leigha …

  7. Are you want that your muscle attaches to the vertebrae of the lower spine, moves through the pelvis and connects to a tendon at the top of the femur. [Check Details Here==>https://plus.google.com/u/0/109305854848533008884/posts/7uRoP58B2eT ].  It also attaches to the diaphragm, so it’s connected to your breathing, and upon it sits all the major organs.

  8. I just did a lotus pose for the first time. Loved your class, I will be back for more. Namaste.

  9. Thank YOU so so very much Leigha! Loved doing this again today! Hugs and love.

  12. Jess Ess says:

    Hey leigha! Love your videos, they really allow me to grow my practice! (my hips feel AWESOME after this one! haha)
    I was wondering if you could maybe do some Vlogs though? about healthy eating, mindfulness, how to keep a regular practice?
    Not sure if that's you're thing, but it would sure be great to hear what you have to say! Thanks!! Keep em coming!! Yay!

  13. I love your videos, you have such a kind and soft way of teaching. Thank you <3

  14. Thank you so much, it's a really beautiful sequence. I will share it!

  15. I love your videos – yours were the first I discovered when I began practicing yoga regularly about a year and a half ago. What a change this practice has inspired, what light has come into my body, mind, and soul! I pulled my hamstring just over a year ago, and still have a little tightness there, but practicing this today I felt a release of the emotional energy in that area, and am feeling quite free and joyful as I write this now. Thank you for sharing your light and wisdom, Leigha! Namaste.

  16. Yet another incredible flow – perfect for a Sunday afternoon. Thank you x

  17. This was great!!! I did this in my living room in Oklahoma. 🙂 Just in case you're curious how far you're reaching! <3 Thanks for sharing.

  27. The pace and rhythm of this class made all the poses feel easy and accessible. Even though we opened the hips quite deeply, it felt like a gentle, restorative class.

  28. Jess Ess says:

    I really like how this one has an intro! Helps me ease into the practise a little more than just starting off straight into it. Great video, great playlist! Can't wait to see more for intermediate 🙂

    Thanks so much!!

  36. Squidbot says:

    I love how your yoga flows are challenging, yet soothing at the same time. I've been following your channel for a few years now, and it has allowed me to improve my practice (and my sanity), especially when I couldn't afford to take classes at a studio. Thank you so much for sharing. =)

  37. Amaziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing sequence add to favorites !!!!! 😉 Congrats!!!<3

  38. Thank you! A wonderful practice, and just what I needed (multiple times, I added this to my healing body playlist). I loved the explorations in several poses that left me feeling deeply connected. "Yes I have accessed the depths, which have been asking to be awakened for some time! " I also appreciate the wisdom you shared about the hips being an ever-expanding universe unto themselves. Namaste, beauty. A new subscriber here!

  39. Leigha, thank you so much for so generously sharing your expertise – your classes are amazing, I am always excited when a new class comes out! I have learn so much form them !!

  40. Leigha tell something which mudra fingers did you make it at min. 15:01 to 15:15 and warrior I ?

  41. I might do this (and possibly diverge a bit from it in places with the help of the pause button before rejoining again) tomorrow morning for a slight change upon my usual variations before heading out. I like that there aren't too many downdogs — these days that posture doesn't sit well with my stomach unfortunately.
