Don’t Let Anyone Tell You That You Aren’t Hip
Novelty is a great way to inform the body and build up your body map! Our class will meander into some very fun and challenging postures. You will get to see how informed hips are functional hips!
Something for Nothing
Often we have an intractible, parasitic tension that causes pain. This tension is the bodies’ way of protecting an area. Sometime, relieving the tension can relieve the pain. Most of the time a stretch won’t do it. Instead we will have to teach the tissues to let go. This is a class about learning to let go, with techniques for doing just that.
This class has all of the elements you could want out of a whole body 90 minute flow. We’ve got a luxurious warm up, a somatic intention (rocking), a slow burn to a sweaty peak. In addition to some of your favorite poses we will work some fun and challenging drills all with a whole body, participatory rocking action that will make so much sense in familiar poses. A scrumptious cooldown and short meditation round out our practice. What are you waiting for? Hit play and lets rock!
In practice we will explore the state of liminality; A transitional time that is characterized by a lack of status or role. This is a particularly challenging state of being as most of us are learning! Our lives, never terribly certain, are now marked with a new level of transition and uncertainty in this time of Corona Virus. We will use this idea to go really deep into our movement practice today. Very much emphasizing the transitional movements that we usually throw away and instead throw away the beginnings and the endings.
Seeing the Back
This is a special practice for students with ongoing back pain. We will explore the back through somatic movement, Yin poses and interoceptive practices. Learn how to use your “eyes” and breath to “see” your whole back.
