The glut muscles on the outer edge of the hip are typically restricted due to the weight of compressive forces of the body. In this workshop we will release blocks and adhesions in the outer hips including the structures of the IT band and glut medius muscle.
We begin with Tias showing slides of the anatomical and energetic structures within the hip and low back. We will review the function of the piriformis muscle and sciatic nerve and practice ways to reduce sciatic pain in the outer hip region. There will then be time for enquiry, questions and reflections.
After the lecture and Q&A we will move to a short sequence on our back, doing pressure point release work with a tennis ball or small physio ball set against the outer buttock region. Then we will stretch and strengthen the glut muscles through small, localised movements (SATYA—Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga) and asana practice.
Props Required: Physio ball (or tennis ball), strap, blanket and a bolster if available
16:30 to 19:00pm UK time for both workshops (9:30am – 12:30pm Mountain Time)
