Hip opening:Unfold your hips to prepare for Lotus

October 15th
Time: 11am-1:30pm & 2:30pm-4:30pm

Two classes on hips! Morning class will be all those sequences to help open the hips and make them stronger. Afternoon will look at hip injuries & problems and how to alleviate issues in your hips! Everyday lifestyles comprising of sitting, standing and activities that increase stress often lodge into the hips, which has a domino effect on your back and your knees. This can lead to many lower back problems and even sometimes knee surgery if not taken care of. You cant force open your hips using a nutcracker but with awareness you can patiently open them through the right circumstances and preparation. Open hips leads to postures such as Lotus so we will look at how we can get on the path to Padmasana. We will review the anatomy of the hips, their function and more importantly the energy system of the hips. We will look at accessing emotional negative feelings & energy which often lies dormant in the hips. By the end we aim to feel spaciousness, freedom and ease when we walk through life. We will end the morning workshop with some pranayama to calm the mind. We will go deep but don't panic we will have variations and modifications for everyone. Not for those recently after knee surgery.
