Simply fulfilling even with all the challenges in it. Thank you Rodney. This practice makes me feel like it's worthy to live as though one has all the time in the world. It make me feel timeless. Namaste! ;)

I love this practice. I love keeping my hips supple & free. I just wish some of the position were held a little longer. Thank you Rodney.

I wish there was a longer version of this. Transition after transition became irritating because I wanted to open my hips!!!

I'm with many of you - I would have liked to hold the poses longer. On the other hand, a strong hip opener session in under 30 minutes definitely has its value! Thank you.

I simply love this practice. Thank you Rodney. Namaste ;-)

.I just wish the rhythm would be even. The pauses for transition in some areas are a bit rushed otherwise it's a fantastic practice. Thank you Rodney

loved it...I would like to hang out longer too.Namaste:)

I really enjoyed the poses we go through in the practice, but I felt as though they weren't held long enough to really feel a difference in the hips and hamstrings. I would love to see an elongated version of this practice! Namaste.

I loved it. Loved how dynamic this sequence is and slowly gets you there. Thank you

pulsing really helped me go deeper. thanx

Pulsing is the best way to slowly ease into stuck places.

I'm not sure how you would define the yoga style of this practice, but it's certainly not vinyasa. Lots of stretching with some arm balances worked in. Not too many truly advanced poses.

This sequence for hip openers is way to fast to completely receive benefits. In my opinion this sequence needs to be an hour long. Listen to your own body, modifying where needed if you are going to stay with the quick pace. No need to cause injury.

Hip openers were amazing thanks again Rodney

mauragarciadance, posted on March 24, 2014

so busy with the flow did not think about what I was doing and just did. wonderful for mind and body. Thank you!

yogibear9, posted on October 16, 2014

Agree! Beautiful flow! Lost myself in it!

Fabulous. I need to do this segment more regularity.

Loved it. Thank you Rodney. :0)

I would say what makes the hip opener sequence advanced is the pace, not the poses. The poses are very basic but the pace is so speedy that I did not feel I was able to completely benefit from the flow. The hip opener sequence itself only lasts around 21 minutes (Yee speaks the first 1.2 minutes and finishes with a savasanah). I'll definitely enjoy doing the workout again when pressed for time, but for a deeper hip practice, will need something else.

giulianogeronymo, posted on October 1, 2013

This is a very lovely flow of sequences, but my biggest contention is that Rodney goes too quickly. Even though I am fairly experienced in my practice, he does not spend enough time in each pose to breathe and really feel the benefits revealing themselves. Major buzz kill!

RMDickinson, posted on May 28, 2012

a little challenging, but come on i need some serious workout! i work on the road and online yoga is one of my best resources. i'm big into both yoga and weightlifting at home and am always looking for something that is seriously challenging!

BrettBorders, posted on March 3, 2012

Rodney Yee messed up my knee! The hip opener video is fine, but the advanced arms poses are very intense. I followed through the flow and after I felt an intense pain in my knee that took a week to heal. In all fairness, it was an old injury from skateboarding... but you should do the intense poses (full lotus, deep leg stetches) with caution if you have injuries or are not super limber

By far the hardest flow I've done on this site... be prepared for headstands and crazy strength poses.

yogachick, posted on December 20, 2011

Loved the numerous arm balances joined in a flowing sequence - felt great to try them all!

Warms up the hip joints and allows to go deeper into poses
