A Hip Opening Workshop with Jenny Reitz
Saturday, April 21st 1:30-3:30PM
The stress and activity of everyday life is often found lodged in the tightness and discomfort of our hips. This workshop will delve deeply into opening the hip area. Much like a lotus flower, the hips cannot be forced or cracked open. But given the right set of circumstances and a patient approach, the hips will release and open like a blooming flower. Many of our negative emotions like to live in places in our bodies where they can hide out: places that get the least amount of stretching and release.
So let’s take some time to focus on our hips! Supple hips can ease back pain, give you a more agile gait, and improve circulation in your legs. The majority of us sit for most of our days, shortening the hip flexors at the front of the hip and tightening the hip rotators. We also hold stress and negative emotions—such as fear, guilt, and sadness—in our pelvis. Did you know that the muscles of the hips have a relationship with the fight or flight response? We are born with the reflex action of activating the hip flexors to bring us into the fetal position when under threat. So, in this workshop, we will explore poses that move prana (life force) through the area of the hips in order to find physical and emotional release.
