HOLY HIPS

Healthy mobility is a balance of flexibility and strength. Our hips need to be stable to efficiently carry our weight. At the same time, we want sufficient range of motion to maintain the integrity of the joint. By working with the hip-region, we reduce lumbar spine pressure, whilst releasing tension from physical and mental stress that may be stored in the fascia, often experienced as 'stiffness.'

Through a deep and dynamic vinyasa practice, you’ll learn principles and techniques to move confidently as we safely explore the depth of the pelvis; moving from basic postures to more advanced poses such as Padmasana (lotus pose).

To close our journey, we’ll  linger in static poses, and end with a soft restorative practice, to leave you feeling spacious and free. This workshop is open to all levels; just bring an open and playful mind!

 

ABOUT MICHAELA

For Michaela yoga is the philosophy of peace. With a background in journalism and social development programs she has lived and worked around the world for the past 10 years, always seeking to raise the universal awareness. She kept going back to India where she studied Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Iyengar Yoga with various renowned teachers, and eventually this led her to become a full time Yoga teacher. In India she also met her spiritual teacher Sudhir Rishi of Tiruvannamalai, with whom she continuously studies the vedic philosophy, pranayama and meditation.

From personal experience of overcoming panic attacks and anxiety- Michaela is convinced that yoga can be a highly transformative practice and that conscious breathing and movement can be a key to self-discovery and inner peace. Her inspiration derives from the ancient teachings, but her approach is modern, focusing on how our practice can be useful and inspiring in our present-day society. Michaelas classes are known to be creative, challenging and explorative. She wants to inspire people to take their practice beyond their mats, to make yoga a way of walking through life.
