Are your hips one big mystery to you? There is lots of focus on “opening the hips” in yoga classes. This is important for creating space around the pelvis and freeing lower back tension. However, over stretching can weaken the ligaments and cartilage that support the hips. Learning how to balance flexibility with strength is crucial for supporting our joints and keeping us injury free. In this Forrest yoga class, feel for areas around your hips that are more open, strong, more weak, and tighter. Learn accessible moves to incorporate into your practice that will leave you feeling more grounded yet light.
*Forrest Yoga uses focused intention, deep breathing, abdominal work, and therapeutic moves to help free up emotional back log in the body. Denise has taught Forrest Yoga since 2005 and is a Forrest Yoga Guardian teacher. All levels welcome.
