Many of us have or may have experienced low back, sacral, or hip joint pain during the course of our lives or during/with our movement practices. In the yoga practice, with all of the forward bending, lunging, twisting and "hip opening", the risk of something running awry with how we are practicing and causing pain in these areas is quite common. This workshop will help you understand how to find YOUR neutral pelvis & thigh bones centered within the hip sockets and how to strengthen the areas around the hip joint to create more stability and mobility around the pelvis. We will dive into the ways in which we can twist, either allowing the pelvis to twist or keeping the hips "square" in twisting exercises and yoga postures and the benefits of both. Using resistance bands, we will access our super-important hip joint rotator cuff, core twisting muscles and powerful glutes. These concepts allow optimal stability and control through the vast ranges of motion that can occur within the hip and pelvis.
This workshops is open to all levels and are a fun and innovative way to explore and learn how to use your body differently, IMMEDIATELY. All props and bands will be provided on site.
$35 through March 15th / $40 thereafter
As a B.F.A Dance major at The Boston Conservatory, Giulia began practicing yoga to supplement her dance training. Fast forward a few years and injuries later, she began more extensive studies in anatomy and physiology and how it links to movement. She left the dance and performing world behind, but infuses its knowledge, detail, somatic awareness, and passion into her work.
Giulia is a Kula Yoga Project teacher in NYC, a Threes Physiyoga Method teacher (a method that merges physical therapy with yoga), and a FRC Mobility Specialist.
Giulia’s teaching is a creative melting pot of yoga & pranayama, corrective exercise, and functional mobility work. Her love of movement, discovering and unravelling the web of the human body in an anatomically holistic way, and creating space for discernment and growth is the hallmark of her teaching.
