Asanas for Hip-Opening by Sakina Kapadia

Tight hips can be caused due to a variety of reasons and tightness in the hips can cause tightness in the lower back and inhibit our capacity to sit comfortably in seated postures like sukhasana or padmasana. Sakina will be guiding us through gentle hip-opening asanas that will work on a physical, mental and emotional level to alleviate any discomfort and allow our hips to slowly open and become flexible and strong.

She has a 200-hour level certification by Yoga Works - USA, and a 200-hour certification from Sharmila’s Yoga Zone, Hyderabad. She has also attended several workshops with senior yoga teachers and applies everything she learned to her own teaching style. Her approach to teaching is to gently enable students to leave their comfort zone and explore the relationship between body, mind and breath. She encourages her students to experience each posture in a space of stillness and ease by creating an environment that allows each student to progress at their own pace. For Yoginsights, Sakina will be doing a practical session on asanas for hip-opening.
