In this Hatha Yoga practice, we will use a chair to help us access various hip-focused asanas. The chair raises the floor to meet our body's needs and serves as a platform to press against for muscle activation. You will need a Yoga block and a Yoga strap for this workout.
We will begin from a sitting position with some pranayama as a warm-up. The first section of postures will use the Yoga block with some isometrics to strengthen adductor muscles and hip internal rotators. The second section of this workout will use the yoga strap as we perform isometrics for hip abductors and external rotators. The final section of postures will consist of general Hatha Yoga poses using the chair as a support. We will finish with savasana in a chair. This class is open to all levels.
This lower body and core workout combines the isometric muscle contractions of yoga with eccentric and concentric muscle contractions of pilates to target the core, hips, and legs. These are some of the most effective muscle strengthening exercises for the total body.
A compound exercise is any movement where you’re using more than one muscle group with multiple joints in a single exercise. It is important to perform isolated work that targets your body's weaknesses, but it is also beneficial to integrate joint motions.
