Free your Hips and Hamstrings
Saturday 14th June 2014- 2.30- 5pm
@ Yogaplace- Bethnal Green


Sunday 22nd June 2014 - 10am- 12.30pm
@ The sunflower Centre- Brockley

A blend of creative flow and held postures to free your hips and hamstrings, increase mobility in the spine, improve posture and release muscular and emotional tension in the legs, hips and lower back. 

If we sit, walk cycle, run a lot, there is a good chance that our hips and hamstrings need a good stretch!
All these movements often tighten the hip flexors and shorten the hamstrings if done repeatedly without much stretching.
Overtime this can upset the muscles and structures above and below the hips. In fact knee problems and lower back pain are often connected to tension in the hips and tightness in the hamstrings. 

In this workshop, we will work on stabilizing hips and lower spine, and releasing muscles around these joints. We will stretch but also strengthen the hamstrings while maintaining optimal alignment to open the body safely and keep it well balanced. 

The body also holds emotions in tense muscles and the deep muscles of the hips are often the centre of many stuck and suppressed emotions. By releasing tension, old stuck emotion can sometimes be freed.

You may leave the workshop feeling freer, and with tools to keep practicing these openings in your own practice.
