that back leg and swing it around gonna face towards you so you’re going to place right knee in front of you about 45 deg your left heel comes over top of your knee this is again your going to see how far you can go if your here that totally fine just hold and push that knee down if you’re a little bit more open in the hips you can let that hip come down and slowly take your body over now here were feeling this in our left side breathe in exhale one more time and let go very nice slowly coming back up and taking the top leg and swing in back around and back hands to the floor and step backing downward dog and going right into the other side inhale left leg up open up the hips stack left hip over right hip bend that top knee deep breath exhale pigeon on the left side left knee left thumb

    you have to know that you have been such a great help for me in my life especially in the hard times i have been going through…
    I am from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, And i keep telling people here about your Amazing Channel Because i want everybody to feel the well being through your videos

  3. Thank you so much for this!! I rarely ever stretch but because I'm trying to take better care of my body I want to incorporate yoga and stretching with my wrought training routine. Thank you so much I don't know if I'll be as flexible as you but this helped lol

  4. Love this workout, I can't believe how my hips are actually not that stretchy, even though my back is very flexible so I found these exercises great!

  5. Your videos are wonderful! I can’t believe you even have any thumbs down…as a former dancer, I appreciate how well thought out your exercises are and love them! Thank you!

  6. I would love some more of your hip opener videos, I really enjoy them and I feel that they are helping me =) thank you so much for your help I love your virtual yoga classes!!

  7. This should have been super easy . . . I’m a dancer and have really big oversplits. But wow, I still felt the stretches! Thanks!
    P. S. I subscribed today. 🙂

  8. How to get the forward bends? I seem to have trouble with that. Also, I have loose joints so prone to injury. So how to build up muscle strength first before really stretching into a pose?

  9. You have an amazing body. You inspire me. I need to stop eating sugar and get this pain out of my body. In another ten years I will be 60 and I don't want to be on a walker. I wanna be doing what your doing. Btw what music is that ?

  10. Hi, i m french and i m not vert good in english,but i suscribe to your Channel because i love your training and i Troy to understand something sometimes…..🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️lets continue.thanks for thé beautiful location….Jennifer

  11. Your videos are quickly
    Helping me become more limber, sleep better as a result of the relaxation, and I’m finding strength in muscles I didn’t know I had, haha.

    Thank you very much, I appreciate you greatly for what you do. 🙏

  12. If our stretching is clear and we don't open it till 6 months and our stretching is closed ,so,how to open it in faster way?

  13. Thank you for giving back freely! The best yoga series! The scenes, the quick series, the music, the gentle guidance and safety! I feel great!!

  14. Thank your for this video. My range of motion in my hip joints are better than ever. Better than physical therapy. Keep up the great work. Outstanding!

  15. I’ve just added this as part of my evening routine. Having tight hips has been an issue for me for a little while now, but after just one session, I can already feel this will be a great decision. Thank you for your video. I’m excited to explore more

  17. I do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and have ridiculously tight hips, my question is will this routine just loosen my hips or will it gradually increase my hip flexibility aswell? Love the video !! liked and subscribed

  18. I really wanted to make it all the way through this video, but the music was overpowering the lovely instructor and honestly it made more anxious than calm.

  19. I must have done this class a thousand times now and is equally as good today as it was a few years ago , you are an inspiration!!😃

  20. Great stretches for hips and opening up those hipsters as well.love this stretch definitely will be doing more of these in my yoga workouts

  21. Boho, firstly thank you so much for sharing your yoga practice with the world, it truely is some of the best guided yoga videos i've come across!.

    This video and your 20min Ashtanga Sequence, filmed in the Maldives, are my 'go-to' Yoga sessions. If there was a way you could combine the two into a full body sequence with the flows in Astanga combined with the hip focus in this video, it would be perfect!

  22. I cant do the yoga but I just try stretching and I can feel the tension releasing it feels all warm in the muscles almost hot is that normal? When I stretch my arms it feels hot all over my chest, is that good?

  23. I saw you smirk on the butterfly stretch, you know this hard to do. I can feel the stretch from my groin all the way to  for head.

  24. Please never take this video down… I've been doing this almost every day after work and I love it. I also love your five minute miracle workouts which pair very well with my other workouts. Thank you! I need all of these since my back surgery several months ago!

  25. For god sake, this is for an advanced level not for some one who was traveling or working 🧐🧐🧐

  26. U look great doing this but as a beginner, I think this was way too advanced looking. I think u should have shown a modified version as well as the way advanced

  27. Hello Dear ones <3 I remember you asking awhile back new Ideas and I thought I could share with you something Ive been missing in lots of yoga videos! I have skoliosis and I have found a lot of relief from yoga to it. Id like to tend to it in the morning before I continue my day, but I dont have lots of time. So my fisrt Idea is that you could do Morning yoga vid, for releasing skoliosis, Ive found alot of relief from the twists and neck stuff and streching my chest. Like 15 minutes or so. Also what I have missed is proper explanations toward each pose safely, when they are new to me. And the Ive missed Slowmotion kid of yoga where you could yummy the poses like in yin put not so stagnant. Also I have fantasized about this kind of 30 day challence where you strenghten the muscles in 3-fold schedule, like in gym day one legs day two core day three upper body, and also included the streching aimed to that specific area in the resting days. And It would get harder each month. And also I dont know if its possible to do yoga for singers or yoga for astral travel, yoga for different phases of the year, or yoga for when you are sick, depressed etc. I dont know if you still have the need for Ideas, or this is even the right place to say my ideas… I also would like to thank you both I started doing yoga independently with your videos and it really helped me along my way when I was struggling along period of time few years back <3 Thank you! You do Great and important job <3 Also, Greetings from Finland <3

  28. I don't play this video if my bf is around cause I am pretty sure he'd be more interested in watching you than me 🙁 Wish I looked like you!!! Omg. I can lose weight and tone up, etc but I cannot grow longer legs. BUT I really do enjoy this one! It gets deep in there were my hips and booty are seriously too tight and sore. My flexibility was starting to improve as I stretched alot a number of years ago and now I am like this giant introverted knot now. My only issue is that I can't really see what you're doing on my screen while I am upside down! Instead of wireless bluetooth ear buds we need wireless goggles that connect to your tv or whatever lol I am sure it exists somewhere.

    My back just cannot stretch. I find it impossible to flatten my back doing so many moves! Is it possible to really become flexible even after being inflexible your whole life?

  29. I love you because of your choosen life style, your open soul for yoga, keep it up girl👍I am going to try this definitely

  30. I try today that's grt, but in your next vedio will keep the music volume little low, your voice is important it's should be clean and clear.
