UNFOLDING THE LOTUS: HIP OPENING WORKSHOP
The stress of everyday life, including the ways in which we move—or don’t move—our bodies, is often found lodged in the tightness and discomfort of our hips. But, given the right set of circumstances and a patient approach, the hips will release and open like a blooming flower! Join Kelly Bond-Osorio for an all-levels practice that starts with a heat-building, hip & and thigh-opening sun salutation sequence to prepare the body for a series of hip openers to increase your range of motion in all directions. We will spend time breaking down and deeply exploring the postures, making possible the release of stuck and suppressed emotions that are often held within our bodies and, in particular, our hips. This workshop is designed to leave you feeling lighter and freer, physically as well as emotionally!
