The Hip Openers ๑ Ashtanga


The Hip Openers
Your hips are the connection point of both the spine and the legs. The ‘hip girdle’ and the 17-25 muscles that it encompasses are the central station of the body. We could refers to the hips as ‘the mother of all movement. When they’re open, you’ll be much more mobile above and below them’. So working on hip mobility improves your relationship with the rest of your body and its overall wellbeing. In yoga we are able to move our ball-and-socket hip joint through its full range of motion, and move in ways that break our usual patterns, whether those patterns are ones of underuse from a sedentary lifestyle, or overuse of particular muscles and neglect of others from a very active lifestyle.

Once a month we'll take a journey through the hip openers of a variety of yoga disciplines.

Ashtanga Practice
Our hips are the base of our spine where our health and energy is established. Our goal in yoga asanas is to open our hips and pelvis to awaken our maximum natural life force. 
In this special class Deborah Hoeks investigates poses from the Primary and Intermediate sequence of Ashtanga yoga that work around our hips. Deep hip openers to surprising simple standing poses; with a new bodily awareness in these poses it will open up new sensations of consciousness.
