Love this class.Hips definite f.eel more open. For those who sometimes need a break from chatturangas due to wrist pain this is a great class.
Hips, hips, more hips

All of my favorite hip openers packed into 30 minutes. I would suggest a quick warm-up first (e.g. a few cat/cows or down dogs). I'm coming back to this class for sure.
Fun hip opening

She has a light and funny teaching style :) karate chop! :D but her alignment points are on point. Nice sequence

Best 30 minute hip opener sequence ever! I really enjoy Jesse's upbeat personality in her classes and getting right to it. This class starts my day off perfectly feeling good inside my body.

true to its name

Hips feel great! I paused between poses to allow myself more time in each posture. It helps having two different people demonstrating different variations of each pose.

This was a good 30 minute class. Just know that there really is no warm-up, she dives right into the workout! This practice definitely points out my weak/tight spots, however, on of the women does an easier version that was good to follow!
The BEST!!!

I've done quite a few hip openers, but by far this one is the best. I love Jesse's instructions and just the over practice. I could feel myself relaxing and my hips opening. Thank you Jesse

Started with externally rotated standing poses, no vinyasa. Second half included pigeon, figure 4 etc. Nice half hour to strengthen and stretch hips!
