Healthy Movement Series Explore ways to encourage balance and alignment in your body. In this series, we will focus on a different area of the body each session, addressing common issues and relating that area back to the whole. Learn about creating optimal strength, flexibility, posture and movement to support pain reduction, injury prevention and a freer range of motion. Leave with exercises and releases you can do at home to help you be your best self.

Interested in learning more about your hips? Check below the workshop of Deane Juhan.
Deane Juhan eloquently brings alive and makes accessible and intriguing the subjects of anatomy and physiology. These workshops allow us to develop new images and new language in order to more deeply understand the anatomical, physiological, and philosophical aspects of the body-mind.
The pelvic girdle is the primary organizer of our center of gravity. It is the largest and densest bone in the body, and provides attachments for more muscles that any other bone—extending from the top of our torso to below our knees, and stabilizing us in the field of gravity. Because of the considerable forces of poor posture, chronic stress, and restrictive patterns of movement, the pelvis is vulnerable to many chronic imbalances, misalignments, and pain.
