In this therapeutic yoga session, we will focus on specific movements, stretches & asanas that help bring balance to the twenty-two muscles that are connected with this very important area of the human body.
We will explore techniques designed to:
alleviate hip, back, thigh & sciatic pain
improve ease of physical movement
increase circulation of blood to the digestive & sexual organs
benefit the respiratory system
In the Ayruvedic perspective, the anatomy of the hips is associated with the 2nd chakra (swadisthana) and the element of water. So, the hips will often dictate how ‘fluid’ one can move. Some persons might have hips that appear to move only in one particular ‘current,’ while others might have hips that appear to be ‘frozen.’
“The hips are not only the place for the legs to pivot from, but are also the base that cradles the upper body.’ – Daniel E. Hickman (fyi – this is my most plagiarized quote!)
