In Flexibility Flow, we move through the classics—Sun Salutation A, Lunge Salute, Sun Salutation B, and finish with a hip-opening sequence.
Playlist - Flexibility
The Flexibility series is based on the concept of static stretching, as contrasted with dynamic movement or passive holds. The videos increase in difficulty as you move through the series and cover all your bases as an athlete. The sequences are ideal to do after a workout when you’re fully warmed up. If you like this style of sequence, there are many more in the full collection.
Depending on the flexibility of your quads and hip flexors, this sequence is either going to be incredibly hard or a walk in the park.
In Wheel Prep, we open up the hip flexors, stretch the chest, loosen up the shoulders and activate the glutes, in preparation for Wheel pose.
In Hip Openers 3, we flow through progressively deeper poses that stretch the hips from multiple angles. It's a great one to do post-workout.
Twist And Bend combines yoga twists and sidebends to stretch muscles throughout your body. It's a great one to do after a workout.
In More Hamstrings, we practice forward bends to stretch the entire back of the body—the ankles, calves, hamstrings, lower and upper back.
In Hip Openers 2, we flow through some deeper hip openers, including Low Lunge, Lizard, Half Frog and Reclining Butterfly.
In this Deeper Backbends sequence, we open up the front of the body and strengthen the back of the body to improve posture and relieve pain.

Beginner Sidebends stretches muscles throughout the body, focussing especially on the shoulders, obliques and intercostals.
Hip Openers 1 stretches the hips from every angle. Legendary PT Kelly Starrett advises athletes to "Spend as much time in a lunge as you can."
Beginner Twists is one of my favourites. The poses feel amazing and it's great for relieving lower back, upper back, shoulder and neck pain.
Beginner Backbends focuses on spinal extension. Backbends are fantastic for improving poor posture, especially if you have to sit a lot.
