Our bodies are amazing machines that are designed to move.
Unfortunately, our lifestyles, and the way we move our bodies often contributes to tight hips.
Over time, the hip muscles that join your abdomen to your legs become tight, upsetting the muscles and structures both above and below the hips. Hence why knee problems, lower back pain, and even shoulder and neck pain are often connected to tension in the hips.
Running and cycling can also result in tight hips due to the repeated use of the hip flexors to lift the leg to propel you forward.
Our body also holds emotions in tense muscles and the deep muscles of the hips are often the centre of many stuck and suppressed emotions. By releasing the muscular tension, old stuck emotions can also be shifted, leaving you feeling lighter and more free, emotionally as well as physically.
Over this 3 hour workshop you will delve into hip opening poses that will work around all angles of your hips.
You will gain a greater understanding of the anatomy of your hips and will use standing, seated and supine postures to increase your range of motion in all directions.
The Hip Opener workshop will include a yoga practice to prepare the body for the deeper hip opening poses.
Leave this workshop with more freedom of movement in your hips and better informed relationship with hip opening poses.
Modifications will be offered for students with injury.
Suitable for all levels of ability.
