Shoulder Workshop with Tam
Sunday 29 May 7.15 - 10.30am
Shoulders complaining with Down Dog and Chaturanga? - this is the workshop for you.
The shoulder is a flexible joint often uncomfortably bound by tight and dysfunctional overlying muscles. This makes it vulnerable to stress and slow to recover with the strain that many yoga postures impose. It is hard to manage shoulder pain with simple technical adjustment. Having a little knowledge about the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder is essential to prevent and to recover from injuries.
This workshop will be largely practical; we will identify landmarks to assess mobility and strenght around the shoulder joint complex and neck. We will apply this understanding to wisely choose poses to address findings and explore modifications and technical refinements suitable to the individual.
