Ahhh . . Ease

Upper Back, Neck and Shoulders focused workshop

 

Sign up NOW!

Do you have tension or pain in your upper back, neck or shoulders?

Do you work on a computer? Do you drive a car?  Any chiropractor, massage therapist or orthopedic doctor will tell you that we are ALL vulnerable to “upper crossed syndrome,”  or “forward head syndrome.”
It is my intentention to offer you a guided experience to create EASE and STRENGTH for your upper back, neck and shoulders.

 

How & why it happens

The natural result of focusing our eyes and hands constantly forward is the gradual rounding in the upper back as the head follows the eyes and hands further and further forward.  The posture increasingly collapses  the chest over the abdomen.  The strain and tension of the physical misalignment eventually leads to strained muscles and pain. Not to mention the problems in the internal organs, all squished and compressed. The imbalanced and overworked muscles try to compensate for the deterioration of correct alignment– it becomes a vicious negative spiral.

 

Forward Head Syndrome

Our lifestyle does not always lead to great posture and alignment

 

Shoulder Structure

Lots of moving parts to the shoulder- but easy to understand through movement

How we can correct it

We focus on the strength and mobility of your upper back, neck and shoulders.  This workshop will integrate Viniyoga movements and posture sequences, undulation, stretches and deep tissue release techniques from Yoga Tune Up® and corrective exercise techniques.
I strongly encourage you to take a sampling of these practices home and keep up your “muscle hygiene.”  Regular movement will keep your range of motion all it can be, so your upper body, neck, shoulders and arms can feel great and serve you well!
There will be postures on the floor and yoga through the full spectrum of movements and alignments. Bring your mat if you have one.
