    I participated in your Yoga Wk shop at Inner Idea in Anaheim: Hips Don’t Lie. I would love to purchase a DVD of the work shop, however IDEA only recorded Major League Yoga. Is there any way to purchase a DVD?

    • yoganamastacyblog says:

      The exact sequencing of the poses I used for the Hips Workshop are not on DVD, however there are bite size chunks of many of the postures in my Yoga Body DVD series. For example, the bonus program on Yoga Body Lean & Defined has the Fire Up Flow sequence that we did to warm up the hips for deeper work.
      All the DVD’s have a variety of hip opening poses, just not in the focused hip sequencing I developed for the workshop.
      I hope to see you on the path to wellness soon.
