There are over 20 muscles that cross the hips, hamstrings, psosas, adductors, biceps femoris and lliacus to name a few. When hips are tight, they increase the load and cause overuse of the spine.
In addition to the benefits of improved range of motion and circulation and decreased back pain, opening the hips can create an energetic shift or release as well. Yogic tradition holds the hips as a storage ground for negative feelings and pent-up emotions, especially ones related to control in our lives. Hip-opening can also create space for the birth of new ideas and new pathways.
Opening the hips gives us access to freedom in the body and in our own unique expression, creatively, physically, sexually, and spiritually. Within this workshop we will explore a Yang Yin style of practice, building heat to create space, using this space to surrender in effortless ease.
