Fear of Flying: It's Hip to Fly

  • YogaWorks Back Bay 364 Boylston Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

Inverting the body is a holistic endeavor. We often think of upper body strength & core integration as being the central forces for flight, but in practice, we also need serious mobility through the hips, hip flexors and hamstrings. To negotiate with the likes of galavasana, koundinyasana, tittibasana, and maksikanagasana (dragonfly) we must first cultivate the ideal environment throughout the hips. We will flow to loosen up our hips, legs and spine allowing for a more supple strength. Next, we’ll break down some important tips & tactics for entry. The beautiful after-effect of simply attempting these shapes is the spacious new landscape of the lower body. You’ll leave feeling freer, more fluid and ready to float.
