Do this practice on the days when your hips are a little bit tighter - like after a hike, sports, or even an intense yoga practice. Recommended props: 1 strap
I overdid it a bit with the hiking, and this practice the next morning was just what I needed to stretch and release. Thank you Birgitte!
Hi Andy, Great to hear that it worked for you. Namaste, Birgitte
Just what I needed; slow and steady hip release. Thank you!
Hi Colleen, You are so welcome. Namaste, Birgitte
Love this relaxing practice and love Birgitte.
Dear Laura, Thank you so much for your kind feedback. Warmest, Birgitte
very effective, slow with long holds
I thought that I was always going to be in pain until I found this gentle yin practice that targets my deeply tight outer hip flexors. glutes, & hamstrings. Perfect length to be able to do nightly before bed and the instructor has a very supportive dialog to get you into a state of acceptance in the stretches, Thank you!
Highly effective class. I think the negative comments arise because this class is quite a departure from a typical Level 2 Yogaworks class. I would label this as a yoga therapeutics class. Indeed it also targets the glutes and hamstrings, therefore opening the hips with a holistic approach that targets corresponding muscle groups. If you are looking for a Vinyasa class skip it; this is more Yin or Hatha
this does not help your hips at all. it is very slow and more for glutes.
Not good; she talked the entire time! Also this was more of a glute and leg stretch instead of just focusing on the hips
As others have mentioned, this is a great stretching class for the hips. I learned a few new poses, but think it is more of a level 1 class. Good though for after an intense workout.
I absolutely loved the feeling I got with these stretches. Birgitte I would love for you to do a whole stretching series. You are fantastic =D
After a long bike ride this morning, these stretches really opened me up and I feel so much more relaxed!
Excellent thank you
After refreshing the browser I was able to see this video and it was really great, exactly what I needed for my body today. Thank you!
Gentle warm-up lying on the back gradually builds to deep, rich hip stretches. Instructors presence, voice, and instructions create spaciousness on many levels. Loved this practice.
Wonderful teacher and great sequence of hip openers. My hips thank you!
My hips are happy! :)
Thanks. I enjoyed this class very much. Greetings from germany.
One of the unfortunate side effects of sitting for too long pain in the glutes and tension in the hips. Wake these areas up at your next rest stop with this stretch.
Learn to correctly practice gomukhasana, a pose that will stretch your hips, ankles and thighs and feels particularly good after externally rotated poses such as triangle and warrior 2.

Work towards compass pose, which is a big IT band, hip and hamstring opener.
