Class: Purna Yoga Essentials – The Hip Opening Series

Saturday at 9:30 am, Studio 6

One of the essentials of Purna Yoga is The Hip Opening Series, it eases back pain, strengthens knees and balances the hips.

One of the best asana series for the release of lower back pain is the Purna Yoga Hip Opening Series, created by Aadil Palkhivala, founder of Purna Yoga. Due to our lifestyle, we limit the movements of the hips, for example by sitting too much and moving too little. The series includes all possible six movements in the hip joints.

The benefit of opening and balancing the hips is not only to ease the lower back pain, but it also takes care of the knees and the whole body in general. As an added value you will learn the psychology behind tension in this area of your body and what you can do about it.

”True Yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life”– Aadil Palkhival
