Sandy Earl:  Develop Your Own Personal Practice

Establishing an independent home practice is a rite of passage for yoga practitioners. It's the point at which you really learn to move at your own pace, listen and respond to your body, and develop greater consistency and frequency in your yoga practice. But just where do you start?  Come learn the basics of setting up a home space and finding the tools to help you start and develop a consistent home practice.  Part discussion and part physical practice.

Session 2:  2:30PM to 3:15PM

Beginner Track  2:30PM to 3:15PM

Kim Collins:  Gentle Hip Openers for Healthy Happy Hips

Our hips occupy a space in the body that mediates between the legs and the upper body. Often tension, fascial hardness, stress and unresolved emotional issues reside here. As the hips go, so does the rest of the body. Release of this “stuckness”in the hips opens energy and fascial lines bringing freedom and fluidity of movement to the whole body and a sense of overall wellness.

Have fun with me in this class as you learn to gently and without force open the deep muscles of the hips. You will learn your body’s language as it tells you how deeply you can move into a posture and how long to stay there. Hip openers are most beneficial when done with awareness, ease and a sense of playfulness.
