This deep hip and hamstring opening sequence leads to tortoise pose.

Recommended props: 1 block

Breathing is too fast during sun salutations, makes you rush into it rather than riding on the breath wave and finding strength and ease at the same time .

This was great! Another tool I can use to get my right hamstrings to open just a little more. Couldn’t do the final pose all the way yet. Also the final round of sun salutes came up fast so be prepared to move!

I had done a search for a 30 minute class that focused on hamstrings but had the benefit of "calming." This was one of the classes that came up in the results. I was looking for a Yin class, and this is anything but. There are several sun salutes B to "build heat," and while there is nothing wrong with that, the class is mislabeled as one whose benefit is calming. That being said, I liked the sequence and the focus on hamstrings as mine are always tight.
