HIP Opening and Backbend Yoga Workshop Saturday 9/27/2014 ~ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm Hip, Hip, Hurray! It is said that we carry emotions in certain regions of the body; the hips are one such area. By devoting an entire 2 hours to warming up and opening the hips, each participant is given ample opportunity to let go of muscular tension. In addition to releasing traumas stored in the pelvic region & psoas (major hip flexor), having greater mobility and increased flexibility in the hips is the gateway to safely going deeper in backbends and forward folds. As the largest joints of the human body, the hips are a dense, congested area occupied by connective tissues, muscles, bones and don’t forget all those stored emotions.
BACKBENDING POSES – When people age they tend to contract and pull themselves in. But yoga, and especially the spinal work we do in yoga, can actually reverse the aging process. YOU are only as young as your spine is supple! Your energy system is centralized along your spine, and backbends remove blocks of energy stored there. They ignite electricity in your spine and bring your whole being to a healthier realm. Backbends warm the system, increase energy and invigorate us!
Allie will lead you through a combination of supine, seated and standing poses, along with some restorative hip openers to progressively go deeper and into more challenging poses in ways that are safe, fun and refreshing! Cost $20.00* ($25 at the door).
