Lotus Pose Yoga Flow - Deep Hip Opening Vinyasa Yoga

About This Class

Get into lotus pose with my new 45 min vinyasa intermediate to advanced hip opening yoga class.

Hey yogis, this week's class is one that has been requested so many times over the years! I've put off making it simply because lotus pose isn't always safe for many people's knees. No matter how advanced in your practice you may be, some poses might simply not feel good and that's okay!

If you'd like to try this flow for yourself, please do so very mindfully. For some, lotus pose feels great and puts no strain on the knees. For others, it's painful and detrimental to their practice. Let's always make sure we do things because they FEEL GOOD rather than because they LOOK GOOD.

Okay, moving on from that disclaimer... This pose will focus on deep hip openers, especially external hip rotation to prepare you for lotus. We'll start with a stronger standing series before settling into some seated hip openers. I would say it is an intermediate to advanced practice. I hope you enjoy it!

Yoga With Kassandra

Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga.


I’m an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn’t quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive


Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I’ve been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.
