SPACES LIMITED SO BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.
The hips are the “docking station” of the spine. If they are stiff, the spine cannot be supported in optimal alignment and the rest of the body constantly compensates for the misalignment of the spine. This low-level compensation can be the cause of chronic fatigue and lack of energy.
In this workshop we explore the hips as a foundation for optimal alignment that can heal lower back pain, headaches, and knee pain. We also explore how to direct energy into the tight muscles around the hips instead of allowing it to leak out the compensating areas causing little or no progress in the release of these big muscle groups.
Beyond the pure physical aspect, working on the opening of the hips, affects more subtle and inner aspects. Of the 5 elements that our body is made up, water corresponds to the hips (earth the legs, fire the stomach, air the chest, ether the head). Therefore loosening the blockages in the pelvis favours the free flow of the fluids in the body and brings more balance in the vital energy flow. This balance will reflect in our inner state as a sense of profound calm and awareness of the present moment.
Expect a juicy creative hip openers practice, great for detoxifying and grounding, offering us the perfect energy for some much needed internal cleansing at this time of year. A deep savasana and meditation to end the class will help us truly move into our week smoothly!
All levels welcome except absolute beginners, regular practice is recommended.
