Healthy Hips and Hamstrings
Monday, June 18, 7:00PM - 8:30PM
with our UpLifter Meghan
"I'm not flexible. I have tight hamstrings; I can't do yoga." One of the most commons reasons why people don't think they can do yoga is because they are not "flexible enough." But on the flip side, longtime yoga practitioners who become too flexible may be prone to injury as well. What is just the right amount of flexibility and tone? In this 90 minute workshop, we will dive into the anatomy of the pelvis in different common postures, and how to keep your hamstrings and hips happy, healthy and pain-free.
Tight hips and hamstrings can greatly limit your range of motion and cause unnecessary stress and tension on other parts of the body. Learn how to safely transition in and out of postures, as well as ways to improve your posture by addressing the flexibility and strength of the hamstrings and hips.
Whether you are just getting started with yoga, or a longtime practitioner, you will walk away with tips and tricks to keep your body pain-free and healthy in yoga postures, as well as off the mat in daily life.
