Adults Only

Ticket Information:

Due to their popularity we are excited to offer another series of workshops targeting common ailments or discomforts which inhibit the body and mind. Experienced Restorative yoga teacher Megan Sety is back to provide strategies on how to manage specific issues by focusing on one or two key restorative yoga poses and breaking them right down for students to absorb maximum benefits both at the studio and at home.

Each session will include tips to help you get the most out of restorative yoga by incorporating breathing, meditation, movement and /or fascial release. Students will also receive a copy of Megan’s Restorative yoga at home booklet plus handouts/tips with photos specific to the workshop so that they feel well equipped to try them out at home if unable to get to a regular yoga class.

Session 2: Tight hips & lower back pain - Thursday 25th July
The muscles and fascia of the hip joint can become chronically tight from sitting for long periods of time. This can be aggravated by other patterns in our life like regular running or cycling, the types of shoes we wear, walking patterns and even in our posture.

As the muscles and fascia work to keep the pelvis and hips stable, they can become increasingly tense. This can pull on the muscles and fascia of the lower back causing tightness and pain. We’ll work on releasing muscle and fascia in the outer hip – think gluteal or buttocks muscles and piriformis – to help relieve lower back muscle pain.

The small group size will allow students quality time to ask questions, try different variations and explore the finer details of a specific pose relative to individual needs. Megan will guide you in using bolsters, blankets, blocks, straps to allow the body to fully relax and discover the healing wisdom in slowing down, becoming quiet and really listening to the needs of the body.

Classes are limited to 8 spaces for individual attention.
