“My hips are tight”. Every yoga teacher has heard this from their students. Many of us have felt this in our own bodies. Often, the offered antidote to tightness is stretching and opening. But is this the most skillful course of action? During this workshop, we will look at the hip structures and how creating a balance of strength and mobility can create a feeling of stability throughout the entire body. Cost: $20
Spoiler alert: it’s not just about the arms! The practice of arm balancing can create strength and confidence. And yet, these complex shapes are often elusive for many practitioners. During this workshop, we will look at the structures of the upper extremities and how these structures relate to the rest of the body. Understanding the integrated wholeness of the body is the key to unlocking the door to this powerful and fun group of asanas.
