Happy Hips Yoga Workshop
One of the most common requests in yoga is hip for openers, something many of us just love to hate. So many of us spend the majority of the day sitting at our desks now, which, shorten the hip flexors (front of hip) and tighten the hip rotators (back).
Hip openers are so important for many reasons. When hips are tight, they increase the load and cause overuse of the spine. Additional benefits include improved range of motion, better circulation, and decreased back pain. Opening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well. Yogic tradition holds the hips as a storage ground for negative feelings and pent-up emotions, especially ones related to control in our lives.
This workshop will include a series of gentle to moderate yoga poses that focus on opening the hips and releasing negative emotions.
