Your Free Flowing Hips
Hip, hip, hooray! This recorded program, taught by Feldenkrais Trainer Raz Ori, will guide you in developing healthy organization, resilience, and flexibility in your hip joints.
The unique structure of our hip joints allows us to have both stability and mobility--at once--and this is precisely what we need to stand, walk, and do what we want. Our hip joints are designed to deliver! They form a synergistic relationship that enables ease and agility in walking, as the efficient and smooth use of one hip joint is dependent on the other.
However, our largely sedentary lifestyle compromises the health of our hip joints, contributing to pain and discomfort, limited mobility, instability in walking, and balance problems later in life. Feldenkrais lessons provide a safe and effective way to revive the dynamic, healthy use of our hip joints.
The lessons in this program will benefit the circulation of the tissues around your hip joints and improve your comfort, range of movement, and sense of stability and balance.
Raz's approach is clear, detailed, gentle, and educational. This series will help you understand your hips and give you protective and restorative hip-care lessons that you can use for effective self-care.
Benefits may include:
- Improved circulation
- Greater flexibility
- Walking with more ease
- Better range of motion
- Gentle recovery from hip replacement
- Improved postural organization
- Better joint health
"This program is wonderful. I was diagnosed with degenerative osteoarthritis in my left hip four years ago. Your wonderful way of describing in detail how the whole musculoskeletal system is integrated gives me a more acute understanding of how human anatomy works. Not only does my hip feel better, but my lower back feels better, my spine is more flexible, and my whole being feels freer. Thank you!"
