Juicing the Hips
- Course ID: M6AUST
Sunday, January 20 — 3:30pm - 5:30pm
- Session 6
Hydrating the hips is essential for the healthy functioning of our physical, mental, and emotional bodies. Come explore the relationship of the muscles of the hips and pelvis. Through breathwork and asana, we'll first locate the muscle of the "true core" and begin to nourish and hydrate it. Through subtle and not-so-subtle practices, we'll open up a dialogue with that place deep within. Come prepared to meet your psoas and other friends of your pelvic floor. Let the juicing begin!
For men and women. Asana and meditation with some discussion and live harp music.
