Straight From the Shoulder

10am-1pm
This workshop explores ways to strengthen the upper body safely and develop a sense of security in the shoulders and arms. Part anatomy lesson, part practice, this workshop is a boon for yogis who have experienced rotator cuff or elbow injuries.
Richard reviews the muscular anatomy of the upper body. He then guides students through long holds and dynamic exercises. Using common poses, students gain insight into their shoulder and arm positions and develop strength. Students should be able to bear some weight on their hands, and their wrists should be free of recent injury.

Reviving the Lower Back and Hips

2-5pm
The connective tissues in our lower back and hips play a critical role in our posture. If they are balanced, they absorb the shocks of our daily lives. Unbalanced, they can cause pain and postural holding patterns that extend through the neck and shoulders.
Students will release the lumbar spine, sacrum, and hips through a combination of long holds and fascial release movements. The practice also uses gravity as a tool to decompact the bones and discs, reversing its typical compressive role.

We will discover ways to apply these techniques day-to-day to ease discomfort and maintain a consistent vibrancy in the lower back and hips. This workshop is for all levels and no previous yoga experience is required.
