Hip Opening Yoga Flow – Moderate Level: Breathe Ease & Space into Your Emotional Seat

(Scroll all the way down for a promo code for 15% off storewide at YogaPantsPro.com)


Our hips do so much work for us all day every day, it’s no wonder we experience their opening as an emotionally wrought unfolding. This class is a safe, open-level Vinyasa flow designed to bring responsible heat into the hips before exploring their full range of motion. Some yoga experience is helpful. Prop suggestions and modifications are offered.

We begin with an intention and seated Ujjayi breathing before we move into hip-warming and ultimately hip-opening sequences. Our standing poses call for work in the supporting structures of our hips, from the hip flexors to the external rotators to the glutes to the adductors. When the body is sufficiently warm, we move into powerful but sweet seated shapes that get into every nook and cranny of the hips! In the latter half, emphasis is on opening the outer and inner hips in a way that feels deep but restorative.

This class is great for athletes and anyone looking to feel more comfort in Lotus position.

As always, please share your requests and feedback. I LOVE hearing from you, and I really do design my classes based on your comments. I’m blown away daily by the atmosphere of kindness and mutual support in my comment feed — thank you!

Be Love! Stay in touch 🙂

  1. This video was amazing! Thank you! I have been going to physical therapy dealing with tight pelvic floor muscles and have been in search of some good hip opening yoga to help. My hips have never felt so open. I hope that this will help me on my healing, I think it will! Thank you.

  2. I absolutely loved this class Leigha.  I found places and spaces of tightness that I have tried to shift for years just from doing something slightly different in the poses/shapes that you offered and playing around with them.  Thank you.  Love your creativity as always.

  3. He opened his hips and the sun rose.
    the warrior humbled, and life flowed

    he lotusd' up and the skies rained gold

    With words some thoughts are best unsaid
    so…joined palms and bowed head
    Sending love all the way 'ya
    Thanks a mighty mill lovely Leigha …

  4. I just did a lotus pose for the first time. Loved your class, I will be back for more. Namaste.

  5. Hey leigha! Love your videos, they really allow me to grow my practice! (my hips feel AWESOME after this one! haha)
    I was wondering if you could maybe do some Vlogs though? about healthy eating, mindfulness, how to keep a regular practice?
    Not sure if that's you're thing, but it would sure be great to hear what you have to say! Thanks!! Keep em coming!! Yay!

  6. I love your videos – yours were the first I discovered when I began practicing yoga regularly about a year and a half ago. What a change this practice has inspired, what light has come into my body, mind, and soul! I pulled my hamstring just over a year ago, and still have a little tightness there, but practicing this today I felt a release of the emotional energy in that area, and am feeling quite free and joyful as I write this now. Thank you for sharing your light and wisdom, Leigha! Namaste.

  7. This was great!!! I did this in my living room in Oklahoma. 🙂 Just in case you're curious how far you're reaching! <3 Thanks for sharing.

  8. I love your sequences. And I really enjoy the videos that target a specific joint. Thank you!

  9. Ahhh, this was so amazing! I just recently discovered you and am grateful that I have. Am looking forward to taking on your newest intermediate class this weekend.

  10. Awesome Leigha-Ji you are amazing and thank you for sharing your videos namaste antonella

  11. The pace and rhythm of this class made all the poses feel easy and accessible. Even though we opened the hips quite deeply, it felt like a gentle, restorative class.

  12. I really like how this one has an intro! Helps me ease into the practise a little more than just starting off straight into it. Great video, great playlist! Can't wait to see more for intermediate 🙂

    Thanks so much!!

  13. I just did 10 of a routine as a challenge… hands to sky, bend back, hands to sky, bend forwards, crow pose, headstand, stand again and hands high… I did 10 its quite demanding. 😀

  14. I love how your yoga flows are challenging, yet soothing at the same time. I've been following your channel for a few years now, and it has allowed me to improve my practice (and my sanity), especially when I couldn't afford to take classes at a studio. Thank you so much for sharing. =)

  15. Amaziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing sequence add to favorites !!!!! 😉 Congrats!!!<3
