Stiff and imbalanced hips are common dysfunctions within our Pilates clients. These dysfunctions, if left uncorrected may lead to misalignment of the pelvis, poor lumbo-pelvic stability and back pain. This practical workshop will cover ways to improve the stability and mobility of the hip and re-balance dysfunctions with Pilates. Through cues and handling techniques, we will explore some evolved and classical mat work repertoire to pave the way to healthy hips. Remember healthy hips are paramount to a healthy back!
