*Update* Freeing the Hips, Hamstrings and Spine: A Yoga Workshop - Saturday 3rd February
Posted by sarahfretwellyoga
January 12, 10:52AM
*Update* - Only 7 tickets left.
This workshop is designed to strengthen and free all those muscles that are strained, pushed and tightened as you sit for long periods, run or cycle or similar.
The hips and spine (and hamstrings which are muscles of the hip) were designed to have freedom of movement, to bend with ease, to be supple.
Sitting for long periods, whether that's at work or at home as well as the limited range of movement in our daily lives can cause these muscles and the fascia around them to contract and tighten, causing what we know as “stiffness” or an inability to touch our toes or bend backwards with ease.
In this two hour workshop, we will explore how to cultivate a greater range of motion and strength in key areas of the body: the spine and all the muscles of the hips including the hamstrings.
This will not only help to improve the flexibility and strength, but it will also help alleviate back and hip pain, improve your posture, teach you how find freedom in these areas with yoga poses and exercises that you can take back home to your own mat.
What to expect:
We will move with ease and fluidity through a creatively sequenced flow and strengthening exercises. We will then melt into a slow, soothing Yin yoga practise, using props to help us lengthen and free up the muscles and fascia of the hips and spine. We will end with an utterly relaxing session of yoga Nidra - a practise of complete stillness and rest.
This is a physical practise with lots of time for questions, chatting and laughter! No previous yoga experience is required and beginners are very welcome. All props and mats provided, just bring yourself and something warm to wear for the yoga Nidra at the end.
