Presenter: Esther Gokhale, LAc
Format: Audio & Slides
Human beings have bent forward for millennia to gather, grow and process food. Yet in modern times, bending is often the source of woe and pathology. Modern ways of bending are significantly different from those observed in non-industrial cultures. Modern guidelines on bending have also drifted away from traditional ways.Esther Gokhale presents the benefits of hip-hinging, the bending pattern used by our ancestors. She shows how hip-hinging can help us avoid disc damage, ligament laxity and muscle dysfunction. She will use slides from her travels around the world and guide the audience to safely and comfortably explore a small degree of hip-hinging.
