LOVE YOUR HIPS

Living in a world of luxury & accessibility we often find ourselves sitting way to often. This & possibly a lack of other supportive maintenance leads our bodies very complex hip joint to fall out of whack. Being located as a central part of our physical structure, out of whack hips leads to some major discomfort & potential injuries down the track.

This specialty class will teach you how to listen to your body, understand when your hips need some more love & provide you with simple exercises to put this love back into your hips.
