We often show up on our mat dealing with injuries or pain; sometimes even caused by the practice itself. Yikes!
Yoga can tend to be hard on upper bodies; this workshop will arm you with knowledge on the complexities of the shoulder joint which will allow you to make better, stronger, choices in your movement practices.
What you will learn:
- anatomy & biomechanics of the shoulder
- the link between shoulders & wrist pain
- what muscle tension is really trying to tell you
- pros & cons of alignment
- pitfalls in common yoga poses
- tip & tricks you can take into any class
After an interactive lecture, we will integrate your new knowledge on the mat in a 80 min shoulder focused sequence; bringing functional movement and mindfulness together so you can practice with strong and safe shoulders for a sustainable practice in the years to come!
ALL LEVELS WELCOME
Okay ladies and gents - online classes are finally here!
To kick off this online adventure we will be doing a 21 Day Sadhana.
Sadhana is a Sanskrit word that translates roughly to “a means of accomplishing something”; it’s a discipline or dedicated practice which allows you to connect with yourself each day. We will be doing this through Yoga.
- Classes will be posted my Facebook page daily starting JUNE 4 for 21 days.
- Each class will be around 45 - 60 mins
- You will get intimately connected to your breath, and learn how to use it as your best self-regulating tool
- You will play within the layers of the body, so you can get a better understanding and clarity around your sense of self
These classes are donation based on and with purpose — since these classes will be posted on YouTube, there is nothing to sign up for and are free for anyone to watch. I’m taking donations for two reasons -
One, so I have the means to be able to continue sharing my practice this way in the hopes that it adds value to others as it has for me. But also, I want it to be affordable and accessible so that this becomes an exchange of energy and sharing rather than a business transaction.
Two, I want to help support others that are doing good work in the world. 15% of the proceeds for these online classes will go to support some kick ass non-profits in the world. For this Sadhana I have chosen to give to Charity Water. They are an awesome organization that has helped over 8 million people get clean drinking water! So incredibly important - water is life. To learn more about their continued efforts, or donate directly, you can visit here.
My hopes for this online journey is about connection. Connection to yourself each day, learning something about yourself, and then putting that something to work for you. That kind of work fosters deeper connection to others and this planet we all share.
I hope you’ll join me and please share with anyone else that may find some value in the practice.
