If you’re an active runner, skier, a triathlete, a couch potato or a desk jockey; you have one common body restriction, Tight hips! Our sedentary lifestyles and the faulty movement
If you’re an active runner, skier, a triathlete, a couch potato or a desk jockey; you have one common body restriction, Tight hips! Our sedentary lifestyles and the faulty movement patterns that we have in our bodies due to external stress that we put on ourselves can contribute to tension and restriction in our hips. This can sometimes lead to lower back pain or knee pain and has a tendency to work either up or down the kinetic chain of the body. Our bodies also hold on to emotions creating tension and the hips are often the centre of many stuck suppressed emotions. By releasing stored tension in the fascia and muscles, old stuck emotions can be shifted, leaving us feeling lighter and freer.
Delara will be starting with a brief overview of the anatomy of the pelvis and its function. She will be guiding you through a sequence of asanas to create space and flexibility in your hips: focusing on alignment, pelvic stability, hip disassociation and fascial release on the surrounding superficial muscles. During the asana practice she will describe the different techniques she uses such as dynamic stretching, active stretching, passive (or relaxed) stretching and carefully using reciprocal inhibition technique to creat space in the joints and fluidity in the way muscles and fascia glide on top of each other to preform movement.
We will look at how to progressively, work towards Padmasana (lotus), Kurmasana, Supta Kurmasana and Eka Pada Sirsasana
