The hips are the connection point of both the spine and the legs. The ‘hip girdle’ (including the 20+ muscles that it encompasses) is the busiest intersection of the human body. Working on hip mobility improves your relationship with the rest of your body and its overall well-being.

When hips are tight, they increase the load and cause overuse of the spine. Some of the possible issues that arise from tight hips are: low back pain, sciatica, S-I Joint pain, knee issues, and even migraine headaches.

In this workshop we will:
Learn the basic anatomy of the hip girdle through an experiential process.
Practice poses that emphasize internal rotation, external rotation, flexion, and extension. 
Learn how some yin yoga techniques to release fascia in the body as a self-care technique. 
Learn how to stabilize the pelvis in all planes of motion in order to allow the rest of the body and spinal column more freedom.

Yoga Alliance teachers will receive 3 hours/credits toward your continuing education at the completion of the workshop.
