HAPPY HIPS :: THERAPEUTIC ESSENTIALS
March 30 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$40
This workshop will share accessing mobility and stress management through stretching and releasing tension in the muscles surrounding the hip joints. Outside of our physical habits, the muscles around the hips are often tight in response to habitual environmental and mental stresses. Through efficient stretching of the hips, you can release this stored stress and calm the mind. Fortunately the benefits from “hip opening” yoga poses and somatic practices can lead to immediate relief of this muscular tension and with practice lead to increased mobility and better posture.
Therapeutic Essentials Workshops offer you guidance to work slowly and mindfully to explore new ways of moving that bring more freedom in your body and promote an understanding of how your body works. Whether you are dealing with pain resulting from an accident, an injury, experiencing chronic pain, or hold stress-related tensions, you will benefit by working at your own level.
