FRIDAY-FUN special class: “Happy hips”
August 23, 2019 Cost: 160SEK
17:00 - 19:00
Friday-fun is our alternative monthly after work special class. We gather to explore asana, play and have fun in a different format than Ashtanga yoga Mysore style. Each month the class has a different theme. First our this autumn is focus on the hip and pelvic region.
Lotus Posture, legs behind the head and other asanas (postures) in the primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga require relatively mobile hips. Today’s lifestyle with plenty of sitting on chairs or activities such as running/cycling often leads to stiffness in the hip-region/pelvis, legs and lower back. Additionally, negative stress and emotions also have an impact on muscles in the hip area. Regular practice of the Ashtanga yoga primary and intermediate series over time helps free such tension stored in the hips and legs.
This class gives you the opportunity to further your understanding of the hip-region in order to understand and deepen your regular yoga practice. You will be taught techniques to safely soften and strengthen the muscles in the pelvis, legs and lower part of the torso. Through a specially choreographed (and fun!) vinyasa style class, we play with and explore a range of asanas from basic to more advanced level. You will learn techniques of how to move towards lotus posture (Padmasana), how to approach putting your feet behind your head (Eka Pada Sirsasana) and more. The class is open to all levels but is not suitable for complete beginners. Participants are asked to come with an open and playful mind!
The class is taught by Isabella Nitschke, authorised Ashtanga Yoga teacher (II) by Sharath Jois in Mysore.
