Engage / Melt: Hips and Shoulders

The hips and the shoulders are the gateways to the arms and legs; they not only carry loads of physical tension, but also tend to squirrel away a whole lot of emotional tension as well. This practice will aim to open you, release you and restore you.

Here’s the formula: First, Vinyasa Flow yoga to create a bit of heat and engagement; next, myofasical release on tennis balls to melt points of tension; and then, Yin yoga to create length at rest. A perfect mix of Yang/Yin.

You can expect a balanced recipe: equal parts work and letting go.
