When we spend long periods of time in the sitting position, multiple things happen:
Muscle groups held in a shortened position can become tight – hip flexors and hamstrings are two of the most common.
Other muscles which are held in a prolonged stretched position can become weak and inhibited- the gluteus medius and maximus are two examples.
it is helpful to develop a strategy to loosen up the tight muscles and strengthen the weak muscles.
In this workshop you will learn how to determine which quadrant of the hip needs stretching and which needs strengthening for creating sustainable and effective Yoga sequences for the hips.
Registration includes optional asana practice from 10-11:30 AM. If you would like to only take the asana class only register here
