Holy Hip Openers

Available worldwide

Gina Caputo guides you through fun, spontaneous and organic movements intended to open your hips and relax your mind. This class, rooted in Shiva Rea's Prana Flow(R) methodology combines soul-stirring blues with extraordinary hip openers of all sorts – tranquil, dynamic and everything in between. It’s a juicy, rejuvenating practice that dives deep into the Earth and Water elements and their associated chakras, Muladhara (Root) and Svadhistana (Sacral). You will experience both a physical and energetic transformation and leave feeling connected, renewed and maybe even a little bit sultry. The downtempo pace and time to explore deeply makes this class great for all levels of student.

This felt so luxurious. A perfect weekend antidote to a week of commuting and desk-jobbing.

Bravo to you for having a long week and then tackling a long class. This one was so much fun for me and I'm so happy you enjoyed it too :) Thank you!!

I was not looking forward to trying this practice as it is hip openers and its so long! But I did it, and it always seems to be just what I need. I feel so much more loving, connected, confident, and blissful now. Thank you Gina, I loved your teaching style. You made me laugh and smile more than once. Just what I needed to get out of my depression today!

Oh this makes me so, so happy to read. Thank you for pushing past that initial aversion and dropping into the practice so well. Bravo!! And thank you too for taking time to say something about it - SO GRATEFUL!!!

Love, Love, Love this practice. It's one of the 1st I did when I joined the site & I keep coming back to it. It deeply stretches whole body & of course hips & does so with flowing, dance like movements taught by an engaging & effective teacher. If yoga was a meal this would be the dessert. Thank you Gina.

MallinaCashew, posted on November 7, 2013

I usually shy away from classes this long, but I´m so glad I gave myself the time to do this one. At first I wasn´t sure it would be ´serious´ enough, but then I realized I was the one who needed to loosen up to really open my hips! And WOW did this open up my hips. Thanks You, Gina!!

@BlissAngel Hi Bliss Angel - you are too kind!! I'm SO happy you are continuing to enjoy this offering! I've got 4 shorter practices coming out soon - we're just finalizing the audio now. I'm so glad we're practicing together all the way out in Seattle!!!

BlissAngel, posted on August 31, 2013

It's amazing how things just keep getting better the more you do them- including this practice, which is one of my favorites from Gina! I love the gentle pace and the cues to slow down and enjoy and allow yourself to feel the ride! I just finished the class in the sunshine outside on my deck and it was pure bliss. Thanks again Gina & I keep checking daily for new videos from you:-) namaste- xoxo

@amcharles I am so so happy this video helped you on your journey - that space between muladhara and svadisthana can indeed turn into real energetic gridlock without some attention - so great that you dislodged it!!

amcharles, posted on July 24, 2013

I absolutely loved this practice. I am doing a personal chakra journey and this practice was great for transitioning from muldahara to swadhisthana. Did not realize I had so much lodged on my hips. Thank you!

Gina, I'm so glad you're here on MYO. I got to attend your workshops in Nürnberg last year and I've been wishing that I could practice with you more. I can be a little too serious on the mat so your sense of humor is refreshing.

Sjrichardson, posted on February 23, 2013

Wonderful practice, just what i needed. Couldn't finish the whole class as my hips are really tight and began to scream. Will be trying to get to the end little by little. Thank you! Namaste xx
