 Hip Opening 101 with Tory 
Sunday April 6 
3:00 - 4:30 PM


What is going on in the hips directly affects what is going on in the rest of the body! This makes it especially important to find the right balance between strength and flexibility in the muscles that attach to the pelvis. When that is achieved there is a feeling of openness and stability that translates not only into your yoga practice but into your everyday life!

$20 per person
Pre-registration with payment is required.
