YOGA FOR A HAPPY BACK & HIPS Wednesdays 5:30 -6:45 pm $60 for 6 weeks May 26-June 30, 2021 Class is full. Do you tend to carry tension in your back or hips? People often develop stiffness because their jobs require long periods of sitting. Active people (runners, swimmers and bikers, for example) also develop inflexibility when they fail to cross-train. This 6-week series will teach you how to gently release tight tissues to feel freer in your body. Each 75-minute class begins with a short talk where you will learn about the anatomy of the pelvis and hips; followed by gentle movements to increase your body awareness; and finally 45-55 minutes of yoga practice. This class will be held in our studio. Proof of vaccination required. WHAT TO WEAR, WHAT TO BRING For yoga, please bring a yoga mat, and water bottle. Remove shoes for yoga and leave them by the entryway. Other belongings also may be left in the cubbies in the entryway. Please do not bring personal belongings on to the yoga practice floor. For yoga you need to be able to spread your toes and have a firm grip on the mat--so work barefoot, or wear yoga socks. Wear clothing that allows you to move comfortably. Tops should be fitted so that they do not fall down when you bend over (oversized T-shirts don't work in a standing forward fold). Layers are good--you are likely to warm up when you start to move.
