THE BANDED BASICS
Learn the basics of controlled mobility: how to control your end range, create stability in a variety of common yoga poses and movements, and develop tension within your body using your own deep stability system. There will be isolated core work, exploration and execution of "basic" yoga postures that are practiced in almost every Vinyasa or Hatha style class (ex: tadasana, down dog, plank), and emphasis on stacking the body/bones for optimal function and efficiency in movement and breathing. Using resistance bands as props for our poses, we will shed awareness and light to the areas in which we are underworking, or even disconnected to, using the reference point of the bands for our own tensegrity.
RAVELING & UNRAVELING YOUR HIPS AND TWISTS
Many of us have or may have experienced low back, sacral, or hip joint pain during the course of our lives or during/with our movement practices. In the yoga practice, with all of the forward bending, lunging, twisting and "hip opening", the risk of something running awry with how we are practicing and causing pain in these areas is quite common. This workshop will help you understand how to find YOUR neutral pelvis & thigh bones centered within the hip sockets and how to strengthen the areas around the hip joint to create more stability and mobility around the pelvis. We will dive into the ways in which we can twist, either allowing the pelvis to twist or keeping the hips "square" in twisting exercises and yoga postures and the benefits of both. Using resistance bands, we will access our super-important hip joint rotator cuff, core twisting muscles and powerful glutes. These concepts allow optimal stability and control through the vast ranges of motion that can occur within the hip and pelvis.
*This workshop is open to all levels and is a fun and innovative way to explore movement and yoga + learn how to use your body differently, IMMEDIATELY.
**All props and bands will be provided on site.
