Hip to the Hop

Tight or weak hips can cause many issues not only in our hip joints but also our knees, ankles, lower back, spine, and shoulders. We often refer to the hips as the center of our body or “the motor” of where most movements are created to propels us into space. The movements are carried out by the legs that are placed underneath the hips as we walk. These movements resonates throughout the rest of our body. The hips are linking our lower body to the trunk and upper body. Even though our designs are the same – 2 legs, 2 arms, 1 torso and 1 head, – our bodies are different and have different needs to be addressed individually according to our movement pattern. In this workshop we will explore some “hip-opening” postures of Astanga yoga and venture into some dynamic and passive postures. You will get concrete tools for a greater understanding of the anatomy of your hips.
The workshop is suitable for all people, beginners and advanced practitioners of yoga, and other methods of moving. Pre-registration for the 2 hour class is required. Please register at least 4 days before the workshop.
Minimum 5 students is required for the workshop to happen. Price 220 kr.
