TUTORIAL 2 - Focus On Release: The Hip Flexors (57 mins)

Welcome to my one hour Tutorial focusing on release of the Hip Flexors.

This forms one in a series of three specialised Tutorials on 'Release', the other two focus on the upper body, chest, neck & shoulders, & the hamstrings. Once purchased, this is yours to view & practise as many times as you wish.

Tight or short hip flexors is one of the most common problems I am asked about by both clients & instructors alike when keen to develop their pilates journey & access the Classical Pilates Matwork Repertoire.

So by request, this session is geared towards those who find it difficult to find release through the front of the hip, & consequently find it challenging to activate the all important glutes!!

As always we begin in standing to understand the effect the hip flexors have upon the whole, & find the all important balance & relationship of the main body weights with the feet.

From here we:

  • establish how habitual postural patterns can exacerbate short hip flexors & associated muscle imbalaces
  • work through some specific stretches to open the hip flexors
  • gain understanding of how to stretch effectively
  • look at the effect short hip flexors can have within some of the Classical Matwork exercises, & how once lengthened, these exercises are transformed
  • understand how reguar specific & effective hip flexor stretches, along with changes in daily movement patterns can hugely influence how the body works as one fully integrated whole.

If you have any questions or specific problems you would like to work through, I offer 1:1 Training via Skype, which is a great way to connect & troubleshoot anything related to your own individual & uique mind & body.  A perfect opportunity to receive further support & understanding where needed.

Alternatively come join one of my weekly online classes, either live streamed via Skype or take the recorded version, all available to purchase here in my Training Resources Shop.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to help.

With love,
