The hips are the largest joints in the body and, as such, are a place where a lot of energy is transferred––or stuck. For those who spend a lot of time sitting, or even for those who don’t, the modern world doesn’t give us much opportunity to move our bodies in all the ways they’re designed to move, to keep them healthy. Yoga to the rescue!
Mia White combines her many years of experience in Yoga and massage therapy to bring you this gentle, therapeutic, fun and informative 6-week series. You will:
- gently nudge your hips open in every direction, and feel how this benefits your whole body
- learn about the anatomy and physiology of your hips, their connection to low back, legs, and knees, why and how to keep them flexible and strong
- learn how to modify your yoga practice to prevent injury to your hips & sacrum
- learn about the energetic significance of your hips as part of the 2nd chakra
- take away some new skills for keeping your hips happier at home or office
- find more ease and enjoyment in hiking, biking, yoga, or just taking a walk
This class is suitable for anyone who can get up and down from the floor with relative ease. Some yoga experience is helpful but not required. This class is also great for athletes with tight hamstrings/low back, or for anyone recovering from a hip/leg/back injury (not too recent).
Your happier hips will thank you!

Mia White: Mia began her Yoga journey over 25 years ago. She was a dancer and loved it but began to feel hollow inside because the emphasis was on outer form, without relating it to inner experience. And so Yoga beckoned, with its promise of connecting the mind, body, and spirit. Ever since, it has been one of Mia’s greatest teachers, an anchor in stormy seas, a compass in times of chaos, a vacation in the mind, a map for navigating life. It greatly informs her everyday life, and her massage therapy practice as well (see www.miawhitemassage.com).
Mia loves to teach gentle, therapeutic, fun & informative workshops and series to help her students find greater function and joy in their body-mind-spirits, including Yoga for Happy Hips and Yoga for Supple Shoulders.
