Some of the longest, strongest, and largest muscles in the body, our hips and hamstrings are often neglected. Whether you are a yogi, athlete, desk jockey, or one who stands or sits all day, learning to balance these muscle groups, and make them both strong and mobile, will help your posture, mood, freedom of movement, and ability to play.
Join us for a fun and informative afternoon of delving into the center of these often chronically tight places. We will use posture, asana, breath, and a mixture of letting go and firing up to release and make peace with these short muscle groups. This is especially great for runners and other athletes, habitual sitters, and all those who suffer from stiff midsections. Open to everyone willing to dive in. Please pre-register early or plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to workshop to sign in.
