Yoga for Freer and Happier Hips with Richard Schachtel - center for yoga of seattle

Everyone will have some stiffness in their hips at some point. Iyengar Yoga which we teach at The Center For Yoga of Seattle offers many ways on improving our hip joint fluidity, creating a healthy range of motion, and freedom to do many types of movements.

What people may not be aware of is the amazing number of ways to improve the health of your hips using modifications of traditional poses often using props.

It’s not enough, or precise enough, to just do the classical traditional poses as cobblers pose without any props. Students need to learn some of the best ways to use props to get the most out of yoga poses for our stiff hips.

Sequencing, or how to put a practice like this,  is very important. Two and a half hours is a good length of time to be able to experience some of the best variations and to feel the progress that a good sequence can give you.

The intelligent use of common props such as blocks, blankets, belts, etc can give very effective results.

This workshop is for several types of yoga students:

  1. Those who have some hip stiffness or discomfort and want to learn how to practice properly to make improvements.
  2. Those who may not currently have more than mild stiffness of their hips but want to learn how to practice properly to prevent future problems.
  3. Yoga teacher and yoga teacher training students who want to expand their repertoire of very useful poses for the hips.

The instructor is very experienced. He has been practicing and teaching yoga for over 30 years. He is Seattle’s most Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher.

Fee: $50, Early Registration Fee is $35 is paid by December 29.
