Aired -

1h 4m
"Flip, Bend & Stretch: Total Spine & Hip Yoga" is a dynamic and comprehensive yoga class designed to enhance your spinal flexibility, hip mobility, and overall body strength. This class is a celebration of movement, offering a blend of backbends, flipping plank variations, locust poses, and hip-opening asanas.

This class starts with a gentle warm-up to prepare your body, focusing on awakening the spine and loosening the hips. As the class progresses, you'll be guided through a series of backbends – from basic to more advanced – each carefully chosen to increase spinal flexibility and strength.

The unique aspect of this class is the incorporation of flipping planks. These dynamic movements not only challenge your core stability but also add a playful and invigorating twist to the traditional plank pose. This combination of stability and mobility work effectively enhances your body’s overall coordination and balance.

The locust pose, another key element of this class, is integrated to reinforce back muscles and improve posture. It's a perfect counterpose to the backbends and planks, ensuring a well-rounded practice.

Additionally, the class places a strong emphasis on hip flexibility. Through a series of hip-opening poses, you'll work on increasing mobility and reducing tension in the hip area, which is essential for a balanced and healthy body.

"Flip, Bend & Stretch: Total Spine & Hip Yoga" is more than just a physical workout; it's an opportunity to explore and expand the limits of your body's flexibility and strength. This class is suitable for those who wish to deepen their practice and explore a range of poses that nurture their spine and hips. Whether you're looking to enhance your backbends, strengthen your core, or simply indulge in a holistic and fulfilling yoga practice, this class offers a rich and rewarding experience.
