Hips: Rock and Unlock 'EmFree your hips and feel better in your low back.
Get stronger, gain range of motion, learn new techniques.
Targeted Muscle Groups
Buttocks and Hamstrings
There are several muscles of the buttocks including the deep external rotators of the hip, Gluteus Maximus and the three hamstrings that attach right under the gluteus Maximus where many people experience dull achy pain from over stretching or miss use.
The muscles of the inner thighs are called the Adductor group. These are targeted through standing posters and isometric engagements throughout the workshop.
The muscles of the outer hips are called the Gluteus Medius, Gluteus Minimus and TFL. These muscles can be tricky to target in both strength and length, but through this practice you will develop the awareness to activate and stretch them appropriately.
Hip Flexors and Quads
The Hip Flexors are often shortened by prolonged seated postures at the desk, in the car or on the couch. As a result, the body adapts to this shape which often creates low back pain or discomfort. You will have the opportunity in this workshop to learn how to regain low back integrity and re-lengthen the Hip Flexors and Quadriceps.
The 4 Quadrants of The Hips
For simplicity sake, I break down the hips in to four quadrants. In this workshop I help you target each quadrant.
The Front of the hips are targets through standing postures, unique lizard variations and my favorite thigh stretch.
The outer hips are addressed in chair pose, and forward fold.
The inner thighs are address in standing postures, as well as most of the hip openers in this workshop
The buttocks and hamstrings are perhaps the most targeted quadrant in this workshop.
What is the goal?
The goal of Hips Rock and Unlock Em is to help you develop awareness of your hips on both an intellectual and sensational level. You will learn techniques to apply to your practice and you will actually feel the results as you are practicing each posture. Every action is accompanied by a cue to let you know what the target sensation is.
