Gently, thoroughly, and systematically unwind restrictive patterns in the low back, hips, and pelvis commonly caused by excessive sitting and standing. Explore increased range of motion in the hip joint by working in postures that open the thighs, hamstrings, hip rotators and deep groins while stabilizing the sacroiliac joints of the low back.
This class begins by taking the body out of gravity with supine movements to open the groins, release the hip flexors, and restore fluidity back to the sometime brittle-feeling area of the pelvis. Move to standing lunges and thigh stretches and then on to powerful openers like pigeon and a form of malasana (squat). We close our class with a short integrative meditation and a supported savasana.
