Inspired by Janis Joplin’s lyrics: “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose,” class is going to be centered around just that. We hold a lot of our past in our hips, especially relationships. So as we move on the mat, and open up our hips, lets release the past, and invite freedom in! Every song on the playlist is centered around freedom, so let the lyrics and music move us mentally, physically, and spiritually deeper on the mat, using the lyrics to connect us to one another as these artists belt out their own trials and tribulations with freedom in their lives!
