FEET TO HIPS

As one of the hottest growing partners to an informed movement practice, self-massage, and ball rolling is now being used in yoga studios, CrossFit boxes, and physical therapy sessions. The Deep Dive “Feet to Hips” session looks at our foundation and the structural/kinetic chains that run from the periphery of the feet to the focal point in our hips and low back.

This session is designed to reinforce our understanding of anatomy and how our body is designed to move and then explore self-massage and modern movement techniques that can help reduce pain in the body, while improving posture and performance. Learn not just how to roll, but how to design a rolling sequence with a particular goal in mind and pair that sequence with smart movement techniques to bring the body into a better state of balance.

This weekend is eligible for 15 hours towards the Joy of Yoga 300 Hour Teacher Training Program and/or 15 CE Credits with the Yoga Alliance.
