Hips: Stable and Supple

with Erin Ehlers
Saturday, April 26
Noon to 3:00pm
Register by April 20

Hips get a lot of mention in yoga, and many yogis seek increased flexibility in the hips. But "open" hips are not achieved though one pose or stretch, they require an understanding of movement, stability, and our personal postural habits. We'll talk and practice with the ideas of range of motion, deep muscles (like the psoas), superficial muscles (like the hamstrings and quads), the roles of the lumbar, sacrum and the pelvic floor. Yoga for the hips goes way beyond pigeon pose, and you'll leave with a better understanding of how to be stable and supple in your hips!

The Event
Exploring the Internal Landscape of Consumption The Documentary, A Place at the Table an Education on a 3 Step Cleanse

For most yogis, conscious living is at the root of our practices. Educating ourselves about how to make choices in the context of a huge plant and an interwoven food chain is an eye-opening practice. When we become aware of the fact that we live in a food insecure nation we attempt to change our patterns around consumption and implement lifestyle strategies to sustain not only ourselves but the world we live in. Join us for an inspirational film, discussion and 3 Step Cleanse.

The Movie
A Place at the Table is about food insecurity and the serious implications that hunger poses in America. The movie explores the journey of children and families who are food insecure, a governor who tries to live off of food stamps for a week, how food gets to our table, the breakdown of subsidies in America for agriculture and more. This film brings awareness to what happens to those who do not have the choice to eat.

The Cleanse
This will be a very simple 3 Step Elimination/ Detox Diet that anyone can do!!!
The first step will be to give something up for 3 Days
The second step will be to give up sugar, carbs, alcohol,and caffeine from your diet
The third step will get you to just eating fruits and veggies for 3 days

Why Cleanse?
To educate ourselves, to gather information through personal experience, to become responsible of our choices, to be mindful, to witness what happens in our bodies and minds when we shift our habits, to understand hunger, to examine our patterns of consumption.
