July 2022: Release Deep-seated Tension with Carrie Owerko
Not only do we often hold stress in our hip flexors and groin muscles, the hours of most of us spend sitting each day shorten these muscles and can even lead to back pain. In this slow, deep, and sometimes challenging sequence we will extend our hips and groin area to reverse the effects of sitting and take a load off our lower back. Give this key area of your body some much needed attention!
Release tension in hips, shoulders and lower back and well as relax the nervous system through this mildly dynamic sequence. In this standing vinyasa practice, we will explore moving into some basic and familiar standing poses in a less familiar way—from the bottom up.
This relaxing supine sequence will primarly focus on creating space in the hips, legs and lower back, but also addresses tension in the upper back, neck and shoulders. It can be soothing and calming for the nervous system at the end of a long stressful day—or anytime!
