Embrace September's Path: Hip Opening Journey to Eka Pada Galavasana

Updated: Aug 31, 2023


With the changing colors of autumn upon us, I'm excited to invite you to a unique journey through yoga this September. Our journey in September will be dedicated to exploring the hips and arm balances, leading us to Eka Pada Galavasana, a pose that embodies balance and strength. Just as life demands balance, both on and off the mat, this pose reflects our ability to adapt, persevere, and find equilibrium in the face of challenges.

It's a common misconception that hips store our emotions. Hip openers are usually only associated with our emotions. Could it be possible that this a limiting idea? There is more we can discover through these postures. Through hip opening postures we can also tap into the mental, physical, and spiritual.

The purpose of the September Class is to explore how your hips can be receptive to what comes up through your practice, whether it is an emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual experience. September's Yoga Classes offer an opportunity to explore this truth while we move towards Eka Pada Galavasana, the Flying Pigeon Pose.
