Hip Opening to Prepare for Meditation with Abby Tucker

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

Anyone who has tried meditation knows that it can be hard on the body, and that it's not just the mind that wants to fidget and wander. Prepping the body with asana practice before the sitting practice can yield amazing grounding support for going inward. This hip-opening sequence is designed to open the quadriceps, hip flexors, hamstrings and piriformis while strengthening and stabilizing the back - all critical for taking a stable yet easeful seat. Added bonus: this is also a fantastic practice to do prior to travel or long stints at a desk. This online yoga class was filmed live at Yoga Tree Hayes. Have a blanket available. (36 mins.)

Level: 1 Focus: Alignment-Based Flow Yoga, Hip Opening Yoga

I just did 2 meditation preps on another "site" both just did seated hip openers,,,,really last thing I want to do is SIT before I SIT. I agree best hip openers are the standing + lunge poses ...then pigeon...then few reclined hip openers. Thank you, now I can meditate.
