Shiny Happy Shoulders
Oct 14, 2023 - Oct 14, 2023
To function properly the shoulder joint needs the balance between mobility to move the arms freely and stability to bear weight on the hands. Inherently the shoulder joint is mobile and requires stabilization. However, due to our modern 'chair' culture the shouldergirdle often adopts a hunched posture and needs opening or freeing up in yoga practice.
In this practical workshop we will cover:
  • The key anatomical structures of the shoulder joint
  • Correct and safe movement patterns of the shoulder
  • Techniques to support the shoulder in asana practice
  • Connection between the shoulders, arms and spine
  • How to use the shoulders to self-manipulate or mobilise the thoracic spine
  • Techniques to realign the shouldergirdle for better posture
  • Alignment tips for active and supported poses

The workshop is designed for everyone, including people with shoulder injuries. It is a must-go-to even for all yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainees.
