1. Deeply stretches of the thigh
2. Opens the hip flexors
3. Deepens body awareness
4. Develops perseverace
5. Develops patience in the practice
These workshop will also strengthen the core as we explore on all standing and balancing while we are doing the splits.
The pose dedicated to Lord Hanuman is quiet possibly one of the most intimidating postures in the yoga practice. This asana requires lots of opening, acute understanding of body alignment, and a great deal of compassion.
Preparation for Spilts
- Hip Opening Poses - For people who sit a long time, the hip flexors and rotators are tense and the gluteal muscles are weak. This combination affects our ability to walk, maintain proper posture, and the stability of our spine. Find the deep release through awareness and use of your hips through the hip opening sequence.
- Balancing and Core
- Stretching Poses
- Shoulder Opening Poses

This workshop is suitable for all levels of practice. All props are provided.
