Happy Shoulders & Neck - Yoga Routine & Neck Massage

Sunday, July 15, 5:00 - 6:30 pm
$ 55

The age of computers, cell phones, laptops, tablets has contributed to habits of poor posture and shoulder and neck pain. A forward head position can cause an imbalance of muscles in the shoulder and neck area, leading to tightness and pain. 

 

This workshop will teach you important alignment cues in standing and sitting and a specific shoulder & neck yoga exercise that can be practiced at home. It is important to do the learned postures on a regular basis to build strength and keep shoulder and neck area open to avoid stiffness and pain. A manual that describes the yoga routine will be given to you at the end of the workshop. 

During the second half of the workshop we will practice selected restorative yoga poses (very gentle yoga poses supported by props that will be done on the floor) while the massage therapist will give each student a neck massage to restore balance in this area by releasing tension in painful knots that have formed in the neck and shoulders and lengthening muscles that have become shortened due to poor posture.
