Hip Hip hooray
Explore yoga and movement from a position of strength and engagement, alongside gentle stretching. Sensations of pain, tightness and stiffness are not always a symptom of tight hips, rather, they may be a result of weak hips. Through creative use of props, changing the body’s relationship to gravity and including active variations of some of your favorite yoga poses and transitions, we create force (load) on the joints and tissues, with the intention of building support in those weak areas.
Travel through the entire body using various self-administered MFR (Myofascial Release) techniques. MFR is an alternate treatment technique that treats skeletal muscle immobility and pain by contracting muscles; This releases the tension in the connective tissues that wrap, connect, and support the muscles. We will combine MFR and Yin yoga, complimenting one another to relax and restore muscles, allowing connective tissues and joints to open.
Yang Yin Yoga begins with an active (yang) flow to engage the muscles, to energize the body combined and concluding with a passive yin practice to relax the muscles and open the joints – getting the best of both worlds, linking breath to movement and stillness, leaving feeling balanced, mind, body and soul.
Deepen Your Backbend. Build strength, stability and flexibility with this fun, explorative, heart expanding class! Backbends are known as heart openers; stretching the muscles of the chest that surround the heart and open up the shoulders, an area where a lot of us hold tension. They stretch the hip flexors and build strength and power in the legs, arms and back muscles. By increasing mobility and awareness of the spine, backbends improve posture and can help to alleviate some kinds of back and neck pain.
Practicing the splits is great for your joint health, flexibility, and balance. This asana helps to stretch as well as strengthen the muscles in the thighs, groin region, and hamstrings. This asana also helps to stimulate the reproductive and digestive organs, thereby improving their functioning. With regular practice, this asana makes the hips extremely flexible. This pose offers one of the deepest openings for this area of the body, and will increase your range of motion faster than any other hip flexor-opening pose.
