YOGA MEDICINE – THE SHOULDER
About The Workshop
After decades of working with clients and training thousands of teachers around the world, we’ve distilled the core components of a therapeutic practice into a series of workshops for both the new and avid yoga practitioner.
We will cover topics that are hard to fit into group classes, but are crucial for yoga practitioners and teachers to understand
in order to help prevent injuries and optimize the way we move. You will leave with an arsenal of information to instantly incorporate into your practice and teaching.
The shoulder girdle is a common area of struggle for both the new yogi and the regular vinyasa practitioner. The shoulder joints are inherently inclined toward mobility, creating the need to cultivate stability when we challenge the joints in weight-bearing poses like chaturanga dandasana. During a short lecture you’ll learn the anatomy of the shoulder and a theoretical approach to working with these joints therapeutically before moving through guided practices that enable you to immediately translate this knowledge into your body and onto your mat.
