Yoga & Pilates for Glute Strengthening and Activation with Darla O’Reilly

Saturday, May 11

1:30am – 3:30pm

Are you experiencing gluteal amnesia? It may sound unusual but it is a real condition and is prevalent these days, thanks to our sedentary lifestyles and jobs that tie us to a desk or driver’s seat from 9 to 5 (if not longer). Did you know that it is possible to improve your posture, stabilize your knee and hip joints, and relieve your lower back pain by teaching your body to engage the trio of muscles that make up the gluteals?

A more deliberate emphasis on targeting the powerful gluteus muscles will result in a more balanced and mobile lower body. This 2-hour workshop is designed to activate and strengthen the gluteal muscles. Through a wide variety of yoga and pilates movements, you will learn to fire up your glutes and translate this practice into your everyday activities.
