Freeing the Lower Back, Hips & Legs - Essential Somatic Workshop
7th March 2020
10.00am – 1.00pm
21 Manor Place
Edinburgh • EH3 7DX
Chronic muscle tension in the centre of the body places undue pressure on the hips, knees & ankles. Over time this leads to muscle and joint pain, inflexibility and reduced mobility. Explore gentle, floor based movements that will relax your back, waist, hips and legs and experience greater ease of movement, suppleness and balance.
Who is this workshop suitable for?
For anyone experiencing tension and stiffness in the hips and legs who would like to learn gentle movements to regain flexibility, balance and ease of movement. Including those who sit for long periods (desk, computer work, driving).
It will also be of interest to walkers, runners and yoga practitioners for more fluid walking and integration of the body.
This workshop will be limited to 8 participants. You are warmly invited to attend.
What do I need to bring?
A yoga mat (or you are welcome to hire one for £1), comfortable clothing you can move and breathe in.
Features of this workshop:
- Learn why unconsciously held, habitually tight muscles in the centre of the body cause excess tension, stiffness and pain in the hips and legs
- Explore slow, gentle Essential Somatic Movements to relax the back, waist, hips and legs for more fluid walking, running, balance and ease of movement
- Release accumulated muscular tension from sitting, stress and habitual patterns
- Integrate the upper body with the legs and hips for greater stability and co-ordination
