HIP + HAMSTRING STRETCH | RELEASE
BEGINNERS | YOGA • 18m
A short, flowing and restorative session to find space and release through the hips and hamstrings. Expect down dogs and forward folds, alongside more specific stretches to work into the hip flexors, the Psoas muscles within the hips, the hamstrings and the glutes for a full lower body release. There will be some longer held hip opening postures towards the end of the session to find stillness and release for the mind as well.
Equipment: Optional 2 yoga blocks and a yoga strap
