Hip Love and Hip Hate
Instead of making pretty, dramatic shapes, we’ll be moving and exploring our hips with control, strength and integrity. Though a magic combination of dynamic movements, range-of-motion exploration, static poses and theory, we will give the hips 60 minutes of the stuff they need, in all directions; not the stuff they necessarily want! They’ll be plenty of thoughts and considerations for you to take away to your regular practice.
During the deep static sessions Holly Husler will distract you with some magic sounds!
Twist and Twist Again
There’s a family of asana that every 21st-century body loves and needs, the twists! We’ll begin by touching base on the mechanics of what’s happening in your body when you twist with integrity, then via a controlled vinyasa practice, we’ll gradually explore the core-muscles required for non-levered twist and then begin to add some leavers, gradually getting deeper into our opening and closing twists. We’ll explore adding our new found twists to increasingly challenging balancing poses and arm balances like grasshopper, side crow, koundinyasana A and revolved bird of paradise.
Strong, Not Floppy, Backbends
There are plenty of ways to shortcut your way into a pose, or at least something that looks like the pose on quick inspection, but here we’ll be focusing on integrity over aesthetics. The big backbend family of poses have countless benefits, if done mindfully, but have lots of less-than-desirable outcomes if you are ‘chasing the shape’. Here, through a controlled vinyasa practice, we’ll be especially looking at; finding evenness, enhancing technique and building strength, in your backbends. We’ll strengthen your over- loose bits and open your over-tight bits and touch on dancers pose, wheel, drop backs, bow and plenty more.
