Join us at The Space Above for this workshop, open to all level yoga students, that focuses on the hips. There are so many reasons to do hip-opening poses: supple hips can ease back pain, give you a more agile gait, improve circulation in your legs, and even help to relieve stress and negative emotions. From a psychological point of view, the hips are like that junk drawer in your kitchen - the pelvis is where we store all of those feelings and emotions we just want to ignore. We’ll use the Yoga Wall to move the hip joint through its full range of motion, bringing prana (life force) into and through the hips.
About Dolores Little Dolores attended her first yoga class 10 years ago as a means to shake up her exercise routine, but it didn’t take long for her to realize that yoga is so much more than what happens on the mat. She received her 200 hour certification from Studio Bamboo Institute of Yoga in Dec 2010, and is currently pursuing 500 hour certification under her beloved teacher, Lisa ‘Asha’ Rapp. Dolores was first introduced to the Yoga Wall at The Space Above and immediately recognized how this unique prop can open the body and deepen your practice. She attended Yoga Wall training with Bryan Legere, one of the inventors of the Yoga Wall, in early 2011, receiving Level I and Level II certification. Dolores finds that yoga is essential in helping her deal with the day-to-day stress and international travel associated with being a Security Specialist for NATO, where she has worked for the last 24 years. Dolores lives in Norfolk with her husband, David; together they enjoy traveling and spending weekends on their classic mahogany boat at their summer home on Lake Gaston.
