Theme of the month for all classes...
Part 1: Improving Hip Extension, Engaging Your Glutes
Put a spring in your step this Spring!
("Walking" will be the theme for the next few months with specific attention to particular issues for which modern life (too much sitting) is largely to blame.)
Tight hip flexors (the muscles that fold the hip joints) are one typical effect of sitting for long periods of time. When hips stay flexed for long periods they do not automatically unfold. We will work with various movement patterns to release tight hip flexors, engage the glutes (the hip extensors that work opposite the hip flexors) and learn to feel the difference between walking with the propulsive force of your glutes vs. the alternatives that tight hip flexors require.
Series runs March 4 through March 27, 2019.
