Something a little different today.. One of my favourite hip classes.. A class to leave you feeling strong and mobile!
… I also popped in a little something for those overworked turnout muscles at the end of class. Enjoy it 😉
How do you talk to yourself & feel when you make mistakes? Or fall short of your goals? when you experience challenges? If you find yourself consistently hard on yourself and this ultimately affecting your confidence and self worth then let’s learn to cultivate self compassion. We can do this through practice! Follow along with todays class 😉
Ease comparison with this guided meditation & gentle movement.
“May I be happy, may I accept myself as I am, may I let go of comparison.”
As we head into a new season of dance, wouldn’t it be wonderful to focus on all that’s in our control and let go of the rest. To let go and not attach ourselves to the past competitive year and move forward with a new & fresh perspective, knowing there’s new and fresh opportunities! Let’s do it. Let’s accept ourselves as we are today, in this moment and from there we can move forward with ease & joy.
The last class of my 4 part hip series involves moving through all movements of the hips.. Internal and external rotation, hip flexion and extension and adduction and abduction.. Notice any areas of tension! This will be a great class to keep coming back to! We start the class with a calming meditation x
Today we work with 2 other movements of the hips.. Adduction (moving the leg toward the body) and Abduction (taking the leg away from the body) These muscles help with crossing and stability of the hips. Let’s check in to see if we might be holding on to any tension here and work to improve these actions.
In part two today (live from a corridor at Camp Rince Ceol) we work through hip flexion and extension, strength and flexibility.
As I explain in the This 4 part series will tie in lovely with our month of turnout. Over the coming weeks I will dedicated each class to different hip movement patterns. Starting today with hip internal and external rotation. Enjoy!
