Uncorking the Bottle: Opening the Shoulder Girdle

with Devon Dederich

Saturday at 10:30am

The shoulder joint is designed to be mobile in almost all directions, making the arm attached to it both versatile and vulnerable even in light use. Join Devon from the comfort of your home in this 2-hour workshop using asana to increase strength, stability, and a healthy range of motion involving the entire shoulder girdle -- not just the joint itself. Asana will also be used to look at how a strong and free shoulder girdle is essential to a strong and free rib cage and spine.

Recommended props include: - wall with a door - chair - strap or belt - yoga block - bolster or 2 blankets/towels - sticky mat (2 preferred, but not required)

For experienced beginners and intermediate students. Appropriate for levels 1-3.

Saturday, July 25 10:30am-12:30pm on Zoom
