Hip Compression and Decompression

This Friday night from 6:30-8:30 PM, I’ll be teaching the Hip Series with assisted traction: a seemingly simple set of movements that open the hips and allow the body to move freely. Balanced hips and decompression of the hip joints are critical for sustainable, enjoyable, and fluid movement. The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint. It’s the most mobile of all the joint types, moving in the six different directions possible for your body. Given our body’s structure and the force of gravity, the ball is perpetually being pushed into it’s socket. This joint feels impact whether we are sitting, standing, or moving. Arguably, even when we sleep, the subconscious tension our bodies carry continues the contraction of muscles along the joint.

Therefore the hip joint needs decompression on a regular basis. When Aadil first introduced me to the hip series, he said you will not understand the gravity of what you are learning until many years down the road. After ten years of practicing and training my eyes to see and understand the human body, I cannot say with more conviction; the Hip Series is the single most important thing you can do for the health of your entire body.

We will explore the Hip Series with assisted traction—basically taking a method that is already perfect and refining it with the help of a friend for an even deeper experience of decompression. Bring a friend or make a friend!

Pre-registration is required.
