Strengthen and stretch your hips in this well-rounded and challenging practice. Recommended props: 2 blocks
A great workout in such a short time. Will definitely practice again.
As a teacher of yoga from the U.K. I really enjoyed this practice. Love the way you build up the challenges and give clear cues and incorporate repetition to deepen the experience! Thank you!
These are all muscle-building poses, very little stretching.
Thank you. That was challenging but good.
Thank you Vytas! I miss you! No one compares! This felt so good, grounding calming yet empowering. Plus no music for me lately helps me stay more present and peaceful. I hope you're enjoying your bootcamp!
This was the best after my run today. Thank you!
Loved this series! A perfect mix of strengthening and stretching. The pace was perfect and it kept me engaged.
Saved to favorities! This morning is great! Thank you so much, Vytas!:)
Husband is out of town. After my kids back to back baseball and softball games today, I needed a quick class to take care of me but wasn’t too long. This class helped worked out some of the stiffness from sitting so long and got my heart rate up.
Absolutely lovely class. I’ll be doing it again. Thank you.
I have been doing this class now for about 6 weeks, I am amazed at how it has helped me in my hips, it has taken out the stiffness and the strength it has given me is amazing. At first I would not do this without holding on to something, now I can almost finish without holding on to something. My left hip no longer slips down, this is a big deal. Thank you
Amazing class! Thank you so much.
this quick class focused on an outer hip routine helps my low back pain. Namaste.
This is a great sub/addition to my hip PT!
Great awesome class!!!
This class is truly amazing. I have hip problems, was thinking maybe surgery would be my answer. I started with hip opening classes, which are good, I still do them. This class is shorter and a little more convenient to do in less time, and oh does it take my pain away. No surgery for me! Thank you yoga works for having such great instructors and classes.
Great class for roller skaters.
A nice mix of zen and torture. Also, Vytos has the best voice.
"zen and torture". This made me LOL. And dive in!
Great class!!! Thanks
This practice feel so good and juicy! I love it!
Love this class, but the "gun" hand pose (toward the end) is off in a culture suffused with gun violence.
I really enjoy this class. It is short enough to squeeze into the day but my hips feel it.
Really enjoyed this except for the mention of a gun. That was a little jarring.
Great class! Just what my hips needed!
My new favourite to help strengthen my tricky hips.
Any Vytas class is a GREAT class! Perfect for runners! thank you!
That was perfect - very clear, good tempo. Many thanks!
Fantastic half hour class, clear instructions, new and fresh sequence. Loved it. I am breathing deeper. Heart felt thanks.
Excellent class, really good workout in a shorter time span. Instructions were super helpful and encouraging. Thanks!
Great class. Hips are burning. Needed to use a wall for balance on a few standing poses. Namaste.
Learned some things about the hips! I suggest telling people to square their hips in between large changes in range of motion of the hips. Great class!!
Nice class for the morning. Good mix of challenge and stretch,
Great class. He's never boring or predictable and always a challenge!
By far, the best class I've ever taken for hip strengthening and stability work. The movements are not big at all, but go so deep that I was really challenged and drenched. I'll definitely be doing it again.
Great PT for the hips! Thank you!
perfection. different poses and the same ones too. good timing and definitely a moving meditation for me
I don't see a lot of people saying this - but this class is not right for me. It's more strength and stretching and less flow. I felt like I was working with a trainer not a teacher. I've tried it twice, but I think I'm done.
I agree. This didn’t flow well for me and I had a hard time finding/following breathing cues.
This was great - focused and different movements that strengthen end range of hip motion. I love Vytas’ classes - they are so original and unique. The strong and mobile hips flow is slightly better / more challenging in my opinion, but this is also great. Note that it is not a flow but a focused practice.
Loved this class. Best thing to get moving in the morning! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
I am rehabbing a hamstring pull. This is a great class focused on the hips, but with a bit of core thrown in. It is more of a focus class than full flow yoga, but worth every minute to improve your hip mobility, Highly recommend.
A challenging and quick class especially good for those of us who sit all day. My hips feel nice & open. Thank you!
Loved this class, my hips feel opened and I feel invigorated! 🙏🏻
Great hip opening/balance class!
Vytas's classes never fail - always physically challenging. This was almost purely focused on hips, with a few plank-based poses in-between. I enjoyed it.
Just the right balance of strengthening and stretching. This made me feel so strong and powerful! I loved this class!
I really liked this, it wasn't stereotypical flow, but I think this class helped me more than some others, especially with strengthening. I've had hip problems for a long time now, might be the kind of thing I need!
Enjoyable hip workout! Contains the possible misspeak which I loved – "so little to do, so much time" – Apropos at this time. Possibly a good mindset switch for always too!
I always love a Vytas class. I prefer his classes when I want to learn something new about my body - but if you are in the mood to flow, keep looking. This class is weighted more toward hip strengthening than stretching (although it does both). I'm not sure if this is a newer class, but if so, Vytas has certainly heeded feedback and thrown in a lot more love with his constructive criticism. Will definitely visit this routine again.
These are some exercises for hip mobility and strengthening. I would not consider this a yoga class or flow. I wouldn’t consider it a level 2 either. Was not a big fan, but others seem to have liked it. I suppose it depends on what you were expecting.
I felt the same as you. Not what I am seeking.
Thank you for this beautiful class. Great tone, energy, and explicit instruction. Also, I really loved the hip exercises and stretches you chose: a wonderful practice offered here.
Woah, feels good targets the outer hips + mobility exercises. Not a flow, but really loved it.
My hips thank you😁
Great class as usual always challenging but doable and feel great afterwards.
Just as someone else commented, this is exactly what I've needed. My hips have been too tight and this is just the right amount of focus.
Unique style with clear instruction and so many new amazing hip stretches :)
Loved this workout. My hips feel looser and energized. Good pace and new positions.
Exactly what I needed today. This class got my hips fired up in a quick 30 minute class with no wasted time. Great teacher- can’t wait to try more of his classses.
great to get those muscles that are so often overlooked. nice work on hip mobility, stability and strength. thanks vytas for another great class!
Enjoyed this short practice of hip openers.
while incorporating some strength challenges. enjoyed the class!!
I am so glad I made myself do this class a little challenging at times but definitely got the hips working!! Thanks you
Great class! My hips are happy!
This is strictly 30 minutes of hip mobility. It is a good way to learn how to move in your hips and perhaps build strength. The description is seriously lacking. It is not, by any means, a vinyasa class. It is not challenging and it is certainly not well rounded. I think the teacher is great and he seems knowledgeable, but whoever writes these descriptions ... I am wondering if they even take watch the class beforehand? It is titled flow for gosh sakes and all he does is switch from exercise to exercise with no flow at all. It is SOO disappointing to carve out half an hour of your day and not get what you were hoping for. Unfortunately MANY yogaworks videos are like this. Please, do better at this yogaworks!!
yes I agree
I also agree!
