Discover Deep Release + Ground

 

Join Alie for this refreshing workshop where you will discover freedom and empowerment by consciously connecting with the ground and opening your hips, pelvis, and spine. Our bodies can accumulate tension and unconscious holding. Together we will bring awareness, tenderness, and an active curiosity to the hips and spine, revealing a sense of spaciousness and clarity that is truly enlightening! Through the exploration of twisting and hip release, you will wring out tension and holding. You’ll then be able to enjoy the inner fluidity of your spine and discover the deep release that comes with spinal twists. Be ready for innovative pose variations, essential alignment details, breathing techniques, and deep relaxation.
