Your Intelligent Body: Opening Your Front Body
35:10 | Leila Sadeghee
This is the third class in the Intelligent Body series, designed for beginners, athletes or those who work at a desk. This class gives some alignment-focused poses to open up and strengthen the front body through plenty of shoulder-opening poses and backbends. A great class after a day slumped ove the desk! You will need to be close to a wall, have a couple of blocks, a strap and a blanket handy.
Your Intelligent Body for Beginners: The Back
30:13 | Leila Sadeghee
First in Your Intelligent Body Series: a sequence designed for beginners and those with inflexible spines to open up their back body - great for those with tight hamstrings, tight upper back or shoulders. This may work for those new to yoga, but also if you're an athlete or spend the day desk-bound. We recommend that you practice this sequence every day until you feel more freedom and release in your spine. You will need a couple of blocks, blankets or cushions and a chair/sofa handy.
Your Intelligent Body: The Side Body
21:51 | Leila Sadeghee
The second part in the Intelligent Body series, especially for beginners, athletes or those who work at a desk. The importance of stretching, lengthening and releasing the side body is often neglected, but these stretches are integral to the health of the spine, shoulders and hips. A wonderful way to release after a long day.
Hamstring and Lower Back Stretch
12:47 | Andrea Kwiatkowski
Ease the legs, stretch out the hamstrings, ease the lower back. Great for office workers, after a long car or plane journey or for athletes (runners and cyclists especially). You will need a long strap and two blocks.
Hips and Hamstrings For All
36:14 | Clive Fogelman
An athlete's class and also wonderful for those who have just been driving, on a flight or been sitting for too long. The hips and the hamstrings are targeted in relaxing, supine stretches. This class is wonderful for your lower back and will give you spaciousness back in your spine and hips from the hamstring stretches.
Deep Tissue Stretch
37:40 | Andrea Kwiatkowski
This yin class is perfect for releasing the deep fascia, or connective tissue underneath the muscle, which is really resistent to stretching and often can only be really released by a deep tissue massage or a very deep fascia stretch. All athletes, cyclists, runners and type A personalities will benefit from this class and it's an ideal class to take after a vigourous vinyasa yoga class.
Yin Hip Opener
24:13 | Clive Fogelman
A calming Yin yoga class with a focus on the hips, great for after a tough sports practice - hip openers are ideal for runners, cyclists, triathletes - and perfect for after a long car journey or a long, seated day at work. A beautifully restorative class focusing on finding ease and deep breaths through opening the hips and releasing the lower spine.
Happiness Toolkit Part (2): Hip Openers
19:59 | Sylvia Garcia
The second part of the Happiness Toolkit are poses to lift your mood. The focus here is on hip-opening, perfect if you have a sedentary job or have been travelling a lot, or are an athlete and have been working on your strength. This flexibility class gives strong hamstring stretches, forward bends, and hip opening in pigeon pose. An all levels class. Beginners will need to be disciplined and not explore the 'edges' of all the modifications. Intermediates have plenty of modifications to keep their flexibility challenged!
Your Yin 5 A Day
32:01 | Andrea Kwiatkowski
Just as important as the right nutrition, is the right movement. These very simple five yin yoga poses, each held for 3 minutes will transform your body and your life. If you have a very active life and yoga practice, are an athlete or sit at a desk or in a car for long periods of time, this class, as a daily practice, will quietly and gently open your body. You may need a cushion or a bolster.
