Hips Don't Lie: A Hips & Hamstrings Workshop

We're BAAAACK....With Hips Don't Lie Pt. II!  Allow this workshop to release and soothe the muscular tension commonly found in your hips, hamstrings, glutes, and lower back. There are many causes for tight hips such as anxiety, a sedentary lifestyle, and common workouts like running and cycling. 

This workshop is designed for anyone who would like to be more open through the hips and hamstrings. We will begin to delve into the hips and hamstrings through a dynamic hip-opening vinyasa flow practice.  Once our bodies are warm, we will explore postures that aid in increasing mobility of the pelvis, loosening the hamstrings and opening the hips. This workshop will include a deeper exploration into "peak" poses such as Flying Pigeon, Grasshopper, Compass, and variations of Lotus. 

We will conclude with various stretches and a restorative yoga  practice designed to gently soothe the lower body and promote relaxation. 

This workshop is open to all levels; however, since we will explore some arm balancing postures, it is recommended that you have been practicing for at least 2-3 months and are open to "stand on your hands."  Attendance at the first Hips Don't Like workshop is NOT a prerequisite for this workshop.  If you missed the first one, we'd love to have you join in on the fun! 

Tori believes in meeting students where they are physically and emotionally and providing safe instruction for everyone. She believes that yoga should make you feel empowered and strong, regardless of your experience, and teaches with that in mind. Tori trained in the Vinyasa Flow practice of Hatha yoga with Faith Hunter in Washington, DC. She received her 500 RYT from Yoga Alliance in 2012. 

Workshop Fee: $25 in advance and $30 the day of.

Please register in advance on MBO so that we can arrange to have enough props.
