Supple, Stable + Strong: Yoga for 3D Hip Stability [LIVESTREAM SERIES]
October 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - November 19, 2020 @ 1:10 pm EDT
Yoga for Hips – 3 Dimensions of Hip Stability
4 week series class (livestream and recorded)
“Hip opening” is a widely requested theme in yoga classes, but the sedentary habits of modern life that contribute to tightness are best served by the opposite—stabilizing.
Join Ariele Foster, PT, DPT, E-RYT 500+, founder of YogaAnatomyAcademy.com, for a four-week live, virtual live (or on demand) workshop that will dive into foundational hip anatomy and practices that will cultivate strong, mobile hips.
Approaching yoga asana from a stabilizing rather than “opening” mindset requires a huge paradigm shift, but if you’re ready to discover the antidote to sitting, don’t miss it.
THIS PROGRAM BEGINS ON OCTOBER 29. SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE.
Brought to you in collaboration with Yoga Journal. Please note: all sign-ups, refunds, logistics are provided through Yoga Journal, and neither Yoga Anatomy Academy nor Dr. Foster will be able to help you with technical difficulties.

Session 2: Explore lateral and medial (side-to-side) stability and these muscles’ role in maintaining balance.
Session 3: Look at rotation of the hip, along with the role of these rotator muscles and mobility play in agility.
Session 4: Tie together all direction of motion for a path forward to three-dimensional hip stability for life.
