LOVE YOUR HIPS

We are celebrating hips for the whole week.

All of my classes will be dedicated to focusing on our hips. I am dedicating the rest of August to our hips. Why?


The first word is the end of WINTER.

The second word is SEDENTARY,
The third word is COLD.

This combination is not good.

This combination equals too much sitting around.

The more we sit the stiffer our muscles are around the pelvic/hip area.



Some interesting facts about our hips:


The hip joint is one of the most important joints of the body.


  • The function of the hip joint is to support the weight of the body in both static (standing) and dynamic (walking or running) positions.

  • The hip joint is one of our most flexible joints and also allows us the greatest range of motion in the body. The other flexible joint is our shoulder joint.

  • Healthy hip flexibility and mobility are so important to help prevent lower back pain and injury.

  • Healthy hip joints are also important for becoming more powerful and performing athletic movements effectively.

  • The ligaments and muscles around the hips/pelvis provide stability, strength, and motion for the pelvis.

  • The hip is a ball and socket joint. The ball and socket allow for a lot of range of motion in different planes and directions.


During our yoga and pilates classes, we help to keep this whole area healthy.

We increase the blood flow, synovial fluid, and circulation.

In 2 weeks it will be the start of Spring.
We will get ourselves ready for SPRING and love our hips.
HIP, HIP, HOORAY.
