Lotus pose is a deep hip opener that looks simple and serene. Doesn’t buddha look peaceful sitting under that tree in lotus pose? In reality, Padmasana is a tricky, advanced and deep hip opener, which requires an enormous amount of mobility in your hip joints and can be potentially dangerous for your knees. Not so tranquil anymore.
Learn the most effective ways to safely prepare your body for lotus pose. You’ll learn how to optimally move from your hips, rather than your knees, as you begin to fold into the basic form of this pose. You’ll create the circumstances for a pain-free, stress-free and drama-free lotus, no matter how far you get into the pose today. There will be no forcing and no pushing of your hips or knees here. Instead you’ll nourish your body with increasingly deep hip openers to awaken your hips, as well as ankle and foot stretching to support your pose from the roots up into the flower.
Today might simply be an entry way into a deeper, more conscious lotus pose practice. Even if your body isn’t quite there yet today, you’ll have lots of good lotus homework to keep you working with this pose safely and sweetly at home.
Plant the seeds in this workshop today for a lotus that grows and floats with beauty and grace.
$30, $25 Early Bird registration.
