Wholesome hips and emotional harmony

Release, nurture and embrace your hips with flowing movement and held postures. In the process you'll open more into your hips and access the psycho-physical connection, which releases mental and emotional tension. Practice classical hip openers such as Cobbler's pose (with a twist), Half and full Happy Baby and Head to Knee posture.

Hippy, happy hips

Through the powerful combination of hip openers and twists, this delightful practice releases tight hips on a physical level and through the ‘psycho-physical' connection there can also be a release upon an emotional level. The practice opens with gentle articulations and builds into some variations of traditional postures, which target the pelvic region and hips.

Open your hips and liberate your (lower) back

Learn how rotating your legs outwards will bring flexibility and freedom to your hips, helping you to release tension on your lower back. It is a very safe movement if you are recovering from lower back pain or a herniated disc in the lumbar area. In a playful way we will experience Lotus pose at the end of the practice - do what you can! If you feel pain or tension in your knees try half Lotus. Opening the hips requires a lot of patience and perseverance, so keep coming back to this practice as often as you can . Enjoy!

The Hipster (no beard required)

Removing stagnant energy to be fresh and Hip - This series of poses moves the femur bone around the hip joint in many different directions with a variety of different actions and weight-bearing poses. The first 20 minutes is lying on the floor with no weight-bearing on the hip joint, allowing it to open in many directions. When we move off of the floor to lunges and balancing, the weight on the hip changes the functions of the muscles to give the right amount of flexibility and power. We finish with a few seated poses after the strength work to maintain the openness… breathing out the old and bringing the new and the ‘hip.’

Balls and sockets - shoulders and hips

Balls and sockets - shoulders and hips

Balls and sockets - shoulders and hips

‘Range of movement’ has different effects on our lives. The ball and socket joints of the hips and shoulders give us ‘range of motion’, but they also have potential bad habits too! This class focuses on these ball and socket joints using common poses done with intention. In the shoulders, we aim to build strength and stability as every day they are ‘hanging’ to the ground and pulled down by the weight of the world. In the hips, we focus on mobility as the weight of the upper body compresses them and stress keeps them tight.   *Props* Belt and Block
