Open your hips, open your heart, in Eagle-Vail

Revolution Power Yoga hosts a yoga workshop led by co-owner and lead teacher Rachel Nelson on Thursday. It’s the new yoga studio’s first in-house workshop and is called “Open Hips – Open Heart.” “The hips are like our old storage unit, holding lots of junk we don’t really need anymore,” Nelson said. “They are also a place in which we can stay physically stuck, and when the hips are too tight, they can keep other parts of our bodies from freedom.” Through a specially designed yoga sequence, participants will gain more openness in their hips, as well as the shoulders, back and neck. “I have seen amazing results from this workshop in the past; some students came in with major hip pain or other pain and left with little to no pain at all,” Nelson said.This workshop also focuses on letting go of limiting beliefs and patterns or toxic energy that might be stored physically in the hips or other parts of the body. Through guidance from Nelson, participants will learn to release these things so they may step into greater ease, freedom and love. This is an all levels workshop, though some yoga experience is helpful. Space is limited. Nelson, born and raised in Vail, is a certified Baptiste power vinyasa yoga teacher. She has traveled the world teaching yoga and opened Revolution Power Yoga with Julie Kiddoo in January 2012. To sign up, visit or call 970-748-3176.
