The shoulder is not only an important joint in the body, but it is also an important symbol of our strength and our ability to succeed in the world. The position of our shoulders in the body, many yoga poses focus either on strengthening or on stretching the shoulders.
This workshop will begin with the basic principles of the "rotator cuff", both through a presentation of the basic anatomy and kinesiology of the shoulder. After this introduction, most ofour time will focus on Active practice centered on the shoulder joint, with attention paid to the other parts of the body that are related: spine, abdomen, head and chest. Each afternoon we will spend some time in Restorative yoga to open the shoulders and chest and quiet the mind.
