Online Workshop on 'Hips stability and mobility' with Pascale Vacher

Sun, 19 Feb 2023

With much sitting (and with age), we tend to become both tight and weak in the hip area, a combination which invites problems. Maintaining both flexibility and stability in the hip joints is crucial for pelvis, lower-back and abdominal health.
The hip joints are the largest joints in the body. They link the legs to the pelvis which , in turn, attaches to the base of the spineand they take most of the load of the entire body when standing or sitting.
Over 20 muscles cross the hip. Movement that stretches any of these muscles could be considered a 'hip-opener' and any action that strengthens them, a 'hip stabiliser'. It is not necessary to analyse which muscles are involved or how, but skilful, regular and non-aggressive, practice of asanas, as those explored in this workshop, helps to strengthen the muscles that support the hip joints and to reduce stiffness of the hips. .
This online workshop with Pascale Vacher is taking place online via Zoom.
It is open to all Iyengar yoga students with at least one year of Iyengar yoga experience (or equivalent). Please ask if unsure..
