The hips are the largest joints in the body, and the reasons to do hip-opening postures are many: Supple hips can ease back pain, contribute to a more agile gait, and even improve circulation in the legs. But there's a more subtle benefit to hip openers, too: We tend to hold stress and negative emotions—such as fear, guilt, and sadness—in the pelvis. For this reason alone, it's particularly important to do poses that move prana (life force) through that area. And with regular hip-opening practice, one may see improvement in the rest of one's practice, since the pelvis is the foundation of alignment in many poses. Our workshop practice will include a warm-up hip, hamstring, and thigh opening sequence to prepare our bodies for a series of deeper, longer held hip openers.We'll spend some time discussing the anatomy of the hips/pelvis as well as the subtle energetic Chakras associated with them.
