Stretchy Hamstrings, Shoulders, and Hips! Exhale Vinyasa Yoga with Goldie Oren

The video above is only a preview. To watch this and other full length classes, sign up for one of our plans.


Yoga Class Description

Enjoy 60 minutes of stretching, flowing, and centering in this challenging level 2 vinyasa yoga practice! In this well-sequenced practice, you will use every inch of your space, including turning to face the back of the mat, flipping the dog, and the opportunity to deepen your poses when you repeat the entire sequence. There will be many opportunities to open the hamstrings and hips in poses, including Warrior 2, extended side angle, and several pyramid poses (parsvottanasana). The class includes shoulder openers like binding in cow face (gomukasana) arms, wrapping in eagle (garudasana) arms, dolphin pose, and the backbend bow pose. During the last dolphin, you will also have the opportunity to practice headstand, or prep for headstand, by lifting one leg, then the other, to build strength. End the flow by melting into a long pigeon pose before letting go completely into savasana. (62 mins.)

This class was amazing! Loved the hamstring stretches and the different sequence of poses was a nice change from other predictable yoga classes!

Patti L

I love all of Goldies classes - great work out with her continuing to request us to breath. I agree - more classes please!

Alexandra R

This was a very nice well balanced class. Well organized flow - the poses move naturally from one to another. I do wish I had been a little more warmed up in the very beginning - there are a lot of hamstring stretches. I may add on a few sun salutations before I start this to get blood pumping into my legs, but really this was satisfying by the end. Poses are not held for very long - but that's for a different style. This routine will be added to my regular flow.
