your body is an amazing machine which is designed to be active and moving. it generally doesn't cope well with the amount of sitting we do.
sitting results in consistent compression of the hip flexors — the muscles that join your abdomen to your legs. over time this results in a shortening of the hip flexors which adjusts the position or tilt of the pelvis. this in turn upsets the muscles and structures both above and below the hips. Hence why knee problems and lower back pain are often connected to tension in the hips.
running and cycling can also result in tight hips due to the repeated use of the hip flexors to lift the leg to propel you forward.
the body also holds emotions and toxins in tense muscles and the deep muscles of the hips are often the centre of many stuck and suppressed emotions. By releasing the muscular tension, old stuck emotions and toxins can also be freed.
the hip opener workshop will include a yoga practice to help prepare the body for the deeper hip opening poses.
