The hip joints and pelvic girdle are fundamental for movement, such as walking, but also provide a functional base of support for the spine and torso. Because of this dual role, a balance between strength and flexibility is key. In this workshop, we will explore the basic anatomy of key hip structures and do a practice designed to both strengthen and increase mobility in equal measure.

All levels and yoga experience welcome. If you have specific injuries or limitations, please reach out to Alex ( prior to the workshop. This workshop will be hybrid and a recording of the practice will be provided to registrants.
