Yoga for Core Stability, Hips, and Pelvic Floor

On Monday evenings in August, Nathan Paulus will be teaching a 4-week yoga workshop at Five Point. Learn simple, yoga-based sequences to help with your hips and lower back.  This class series will emphasize exercises for gentle stretching of tight external muscles and activation of deep core muscles. Students will learn effective techniques to encourage deeper breathing and simple pelvic floor exercises that can be employed in everyday life. A study guide with the different exercises will be provided to help with home practice.

These classes will benefit anyone who has lower back sensitivity or tightness in the hips.  The exercises we work on are especially good for managing anxiety, high stress and sleep difficulties.

Weeks 1 and 2: Floor postures, isolating deep core muscles, diaphragmatic breathing and pelvic floor awareness. 

Weeks 3 and 4: Standing alignment with gravity, learning how to move towards “pelvic neutral” and deep body awareness. Review, refine and answer questions.

The series begins Monday, August 7th from 6:45-8pm. The cost of the series is $80. Some mats will be provided, but you are encouraged to bring your own. Space is limited, so book online to reserve a spot!
