When we sit, the hip flexors (located at the very top of our thighs close the hip crease) are held in a constant state of flexion. Our body is not designed to sit for hours and hours, so postures that move the front of the thigh in the opposite direction will help stretch and open this area of the body preventing future pain. All the postures in this sequence are non-weight bearing, which is recommended if you don’t have a consistent flow or experienced yoga practice. Always listen to your body and never force yourself into a position, especially if you’re body is very tight in this particular area. And get up several times a day from your desk and stretch - you’ll be surprised what it will do for you! Recommended props: 2 blankets, 1 bolster, 1 block

Good restorative class and a great one to share with a mostly sedentary person you'd like to become more active / try yoga!

I was feeling some stiffness today as I was not feeling well yesterday and did a lot of sitting. These stretches were fantastic and helped to remove my stiffness. Dani is a fabulous instructor.

Enjoyable but I wish there was more on the stomach and less on the back...

I have previously had FAI surgery and am dealing with a re-torn labrum. This brought me some much-needed relief after a very restless night. Thank you!!!

I woke up with a tight low back and hip flexors. This class was a perfect way to ease into the day.

Loved it. Excellent slow practice after a long work day that involved too much sitting. Will definitely do this practice again!

Hi Dani. I'm glad I can still learn from you online, but I miss the force that is strong within you.
