Workshop hip openers to yogic splits
Time & Location
About the event
Many people are stiff in the hips. This may be because we are just accumulating all our emotions there. This workshop is for both the novice yogi who wants to work on those blockages, and the advanced yogi who wants to learn to add the splits to his / her yoga routine. By the way, did you know that I only slipped into a split for the first time in my life at the age of 42, 2 years after I started yoga? And then I certainly had no background in gymnastics or ballet. So you are never too old to start.
We will of course start with a thorough Ashtanga based warm-up. In addition, there is extra focus on the alignment of the postures within the series where you open your hips; like the warriors (virabhadrasana). Releasing emotional blockages, which we store in our hips, is done through a series of deep yin postures. And when we have become somewhat flexible in the hips, we practice the techniques to slowly sink deeper into a split, the hanumanasana.
To help you, I use hands-on adjustment techniques that I learned from my guru in India. Also as
fellow yoga teacher you are of course very welcome to learn my adjustment techniques.
Costs: € 45 incl. Healthy vegan snacks afterwards.
