Focus Flow: Hip Openers 

Date & Time: Sunday, April 28th, 12:30-2:00 PM

Location: Manayunk 

Cost: $30

Does the warmer weather have you opting for a run outside? Do you like to mix up your workout routine? Are you looking for a yoga practice designed to complement your other forms of movement? Are you feeling tightness in your hips from sitting all day long? 

Join Sarah for a 90-minute focus flow that will focus on hip openers. Class will begin with a 5-minute guided meditation, followed by 5 minutes for reflection and journaling. Sarah will then guide students through a 75-minute power vinyasa class with a sequence that incorporates a variety of poses and holds to increase mobility and unlock any tightness in the hips. Class will close with an extended savasana and time to reflect on the practice. 

Participats can expect to walk away with a physical opening of their hips. Students will have ample time to explore and play, safely, so that they can incorporate these elements of hip openers in their regular 60-minute practice. The journaling component will allow students to connect to the emotions or feelings associated with the physical practice. 

This is the first of a multi-part Focus Flow series. Stay tuned for more details on the next Focus Flow.
