Tight Hips?  

Everyone has tight hips. Whether it’s due to too much sitting, being at the computer too long, not enough exercise, or just not knowing how to utilize asanas to help relieve tight hips. And, unfortunately when our hips are tight our lower backs, shoulders, and minds can become tight. 

In this class, we practice a variety of asanas to help us strengthen and lengthen the muscles in our legs, hips, abdominal area, psoas, and lower back so that we can increase the range of movement in these targeted areas. 

I introduce you to a technique called facilitated stretching, that teaches us how to contract (shortens) a tight muscle to encourage  muscles to release (lengthen).

And finally, our practice integrates breathing techniques and bandhas (“locks”) so that we can breathe out tightness,  feel connected and stabile, and feel more positive energy flowing within us.

Making Gratitude Our Practice

Oftentimes we overuse our minds to get ahead, causing potential strain in our brain. I call this being in beta brainwaves, where we can be too linear, goal oriented, and driven. Unfortunately, if we reside in this driven state of mind, we can miss out receiving the joy of life.

In this class, we practice synchronizing an “attitude of gratitude” with our asanas, pranayama, and meditation. With our asana practice we learn how to let go and relax and relieve tension  in our head, neck, and shoulders. Our pranayama practice teaches us to exhale deeply to let go of  “thinking” obstacles. Our meditation assists in surrendering to what is and living in the moment with gratitude in our hearts.

Aim of Asanas  Each pose I teach during these classes is designed to help you release any stored pain, anxiety, stress, or tension you may be experiencing so that your vital energy – prana – can move freely through your whole entire body. When your vital energy is flowing freely (not obstructed), you experience positive emotions, revitalized energy, mental clarity, lightness, pain relief, and a sense of overall well-being.

Pranayama Each class incorporates pranayama techniques, such as alternate nostril breathing and soft belly breathing, to calm the mind and relax the nervous system.

Try This Fun and Uplifting Pranayama Practice: Practice this guided Wim Hof breathing technique. Try practicing outside or while you are biking, breathing in the benefits of clean, fresh air and sunshine.

The Yang and Yin of Yoga We practice balancing the yang energy (doing/effort) and the yin energy (receiving/effortlessness) of each pose to experience lightness, strength, fluidity, freedom, and revitalized energy.
