Hip Mobility Yoga Workshop (ONLINE)

Photo of the event-detail

There are 22 muscles that cross over the hip joint at different angles and in multiple directions. Besides being uncomfortable, tightness in these muscles can throw off your posture and show up as pain elsewhere in the body. These troubles can be progressive, or reversible, depending on whether you do something about them or not. In this workshop, discover a series of yoga stretches and unique strengthening moves designed to help you “open” your hips by loosening tight muscles and building strength. For all ages and abilities but does involve lying on the floor and some kneeling.
