Hip-Opening Workshop

  • The Balanced Living Center 16600 Sprague Road Middleburg Heights, OH, 44130 United States (map)

Join Jill Pawloski for this two hour workshop that will leave your hips and your heart happy! Almost all poses in yoga allows for some sort of muscle to be stretched in and around the hip area. We will flow through a slow hip-opening Vinyasa practice with awareness of all the muscles we are are using in each pose, followed by a deep releasing Yin Yoga practice to find more space within the

Your hips are the connection point of both the spine and the legs. The ‘hip girdle’ and the 20+ muscles that it encompasses are the central station of the body. So working on hip mobility improves your relationship with the rest of your body and its overall well-being.

When hips are tight, they increase the load and cause overuse of the spine. In addition to the benefits of improved range of motion and circulation and decreased back pain, opening the hips can create an
energetic shift or release as well.

Yogic tradition holds the hips as a storage ground for negative feelings and pent-up emotions, especially ones related to control in our lives. Hip-opening can also create space for the birth of new ideas and new pathways.

Opening the hips gives us access to freedom in the body and in our own unique expression -creatively, physically, sexually, and spiritually.

No yoga experience necessary.
