360 degrees Hippy Hips 5pm · 7.30pm
Many of us hold a great deal of tension, emotions, and stress in the hips.
Emotions are energy. When they are not released, they became stuck energy in the body that can morph into tightness or pain. Additionally by spend the majority of our days standing, sitting and driving, our hips lose mobility and become tight and tense.
Tight hamstrings and hips can contribute to problems with the low back and knees.
They can also be a source of huge frustration for yoga practitioners as elements of their practice may feel restricted, particularly forward bends, floating into inversions, moving into lotus and putting the legs behind the head.
This workshop is designed for anyone who wants to increase their flexibility through the hips and hamstrings. We will begin to delve into the hip hip-flexors, hips and hamstrings through a hip-opening Forrest inspired practice.
We will explore postures that aid in increasing the mobility of the pelvis, loosening the
hamstrings and opening the hips.
This workshop will include a deeper exploration into "peak" poses such as Head to Ankle, Hanumanasa (Splits), Eka Pada and Dwi Pada Sirsasana (One or Two leg behind the head).
We will conclude with a guided deep relaxation to get rid of any tension left in the body and make you feel rested and re-energised.
