Learning new movement takes lots of repetition, but keeping what you've earned in your body also takes frequent check ins.

This workshop covers all the component parts of the Hip Up study so you can learn at your own pace and review as necessary. Rachel will detail Datura Style™ fundamental hip work including hip lifts, hip bumps, swings, and more. You will learn all of these hip movements alongside essential foot patterns and arm pathways. Everything will be combined into a 10 minute Hip Up study practice to create an efficient and strong technique drill.
