They say that “hips don't lie”, and there's some truth in that.
Most of us can say they feel tightness, pain, tension, or
discomfort in their hips at some time or another. Some of it may be
our lifestyle--sitting at a computer, in the car, etc. Sometimes
it's positive movement but always in one plane, like running on
pavement, that can cause imbalances in the hips.
This three-week series is for novice yogis and experienced instructors alike. We will cover the anatomy of the pelvis and hip joints in-depth, discussing the bones, ligaments, joints, and muscles that can cause discomfort in the hips. We'll also touch on the emotional patterns of holding tension in our pelvis that can contribute to issues. By the end, you'll feel more knowledgeable, open, and grounded in this important part of your body.
