Yin Yang workshop - The Hips!
Yin Yang workshop – The Hips!
Sunday 17th March 2019 1000 -1230 hrs.
For many of us the hip area can be tight which can lead to knee and lower back problems over time. In this workshop we will move the hips in all directions;- flexion, extension, internal and external rotation, abduction and adduction to find a deeper release into the hip joint so we can sit more comfortably for meditation.
Starting with a one hour Yin session to stimulate the hip joint and surrounding connective tissues we will prepare the body for a one hour yang practice. Yin supports the joints and works on a deeper level thus giving the body the support it needs for stronger yang work . By giving the body time, stillness and passivity we allow the tension in the tissues to dissolve. In this way we increase our range of movement for our Yang practice by stimulating changes within the connective tissues of the body. Yang builds our strength, heat and energy. We need both Yin and Yang to balance our lives.
We will experiment with seated poses to find our most comfortable and maintainable seat in order to feel grounded so we can sit for a guided meditation.
This workshop aims to leave you not only with a feeling of space and lightness in the hips but also a sense of freedom, comfort, peace and renewed energy within your mind and spirit too.
