Ask and ye shall receive

My hips felt very tight this morning, so in yoga class I asked for hip openers. By the end of class, my hips were about as open as they ever have been. Let’s see what opened them:

  • lizard pose: like a runner’s lunge but down on your forearms, forward leg hugging the midline
  • the various standing poses, of course
  • 500 variations on baby cradle (bent leg close to chest)
  • pigeons, pigeons, and more pigeons
  • astavakrasana
  • and last but not least, yoganidrasana. Unfortunately, my 30-something belly got in the way before I was able to finish it.
