ONLINE WORKSHOP: Hips Yoga Anatomy for Strength and Mobility – Dr. Ariele Foster
August 16, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT$35
Hip opening is the most popular request of yoga teachers.
Does what we do on the yoga mat make sense with our anatomy?
Tight and weak muscle patterns become embedded into our bodies through furniture, lifestyle and more. These patterns don’t ONLY follow us onto the yoga mat (no matter how many sun salutations we do):
…these unserving patterns can also be created on the mat.
So…more hip opening?
Discover specific ways to move your hips mindfully on the mat to unlock hip flexors and awaken hip stabilizers. Dive into the deep world of “hip healthcare” including rotational strength, joint centricity, stabilization, muscular activation and so much more.
From tight hip flexors to the distance between your knees and the floor in cross-legged, explore and play with movement-science informed ways to enhance true, sustainable mobility (hip opening + strength) in this pivotal part of your body.
Guided by a doctor of physical therapy and yoga teacher, you will get to know the muscles surrounding your hips, understand the role of the hips in balance and core stability, and find new levels of ease and freedom in yoga asana.
This workshop is all levels and is designed for anyone who sits for any length any day of the week, for cyclists, for runners, for truckers, and of course, for yogis.
2 contact hour CEUs for Yoga Alliance, IAYT, and more.
