Yoga for the hips
“Perfection is having the greatest range possible of comfort.”
Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
Yoga for the hips – a short yoga practice
When I invite you to practice yoga with me, I’m inviting you to explore shapes, movements and pauses that are as Bonnie so simply puts it within the “greatest range possible of comfort” to yourself. So when you take this mini series of practices with me, please do honour yourselves fully and listen to your unique experience of the practice.
Learn about yourself and the in-built mechanisms you have in place to connect to your breath, movement and your ability to slow-down. This is where the real learning happens.
Know what it is you need for your hips, and then for your whole body as you re-integrate what you discover for yourself during the practice.
3 Yoga postures for the hips – 30 minutes
I invite you to join me for my third in a series of practices designed to explore 3 postures. In this 30 minute yoga practice we take an inquiry into the hips.
When we explore posture we’re also exploring our physical shape and expression. Notice how the hips and pelvis connect to your whole body as you go through the practice. Cultivate useful ways to strengthen and support yourself through the pathways of the hips and discover your wholeness, whilst deepening your breath, body and mental awareness.
These shorter practices help us to develop strength, support and mobility as I guide you through a journey into some of the major joint paths in the body. As always I ask that you take care of yourselves during your practice and move within a range that is useful for you. You may wish to make notes based on your experience.
Find space to move freely and have any props you may like to work with available for balancing such as a chair, table top or wall you can move towards if needed. No prior experience of yoga required. Let me know how you get on and most importantly enjoy this time and space to nurture and care for yourself!
Read Yoga for the feet and Yoga for the ankles and knees to take the first two practices in this ongoing series and read about my personal experiences as well as my reasons for wanting to start offering these shorter, more targeted sessions.
Along with my YouTube channel you can connect with me by signing up to my mailing list, where I will keep you up to date with my ongoing class schedule as well as linking out to my blog, so you can be the first to read any new article or practice that I have launched.
I teach online every Monday morning and Wednesday evening via Zoom, you’re welcome to join me at any stage, whether you have experience of yoga or not, practices are designed to be inclusive and accessible.
Keep in touch and I look forward to reconnecting with you soon.
