Do you have tension and tightness in your neck and shoulders? Would you like more flexibility and ease of movement? Many problems with pain begin with poor mobility in the shoulders. And what goes on in the
shoulders, affects the neck and jaw. The way we hold ourselves (bags on shoulders, looking at a computer screen, poor posture, or time spent on mobile devices) create all sorts of imbalances in the structures of the
shoulders, neck and jaw. These often lead to postural changes such as forward head position, rounding of the upper back, lower back discomfort and tension headaches. In this workshop, experience and learn how to create more ease and increase mobility in these parts of your body! You can finally say AAAHHH with joy!
Discover specific stretches designed to bring relief to tight shoulders while freeing the neck and jaw, increasing range of motion and improving posture. Exploration may include self-massage using therapy balls, restorative poses for opening the shoulders and upper body, tie stretches, calm yogic breathing with mindfulness, joint mobilization yoga stretches, foam rollers to aid in deep release, and muscle activation and strengthening exercises. Class ends with a guided relaxation, allowing you to rest deeply and integrate all that you have learned. Leave class knowing several exercises which you can continue to practice on your own to maintain happy, healthy shoulders! Open to all levels. No experience necessary. Personalized hands-on assists or verbal cues are provided for a customized practice.
