Many people live with tightness, instability and chronic pain in the neck and shoulders. In this workshop we will explore therapeutic asanas to bring mobility, strength and proper alignment to the complicated arrangement of the cervical spine and the shoulder girdle. In particular, the action of lifting the head and moving the cervical spine into extension is an extremely important action for strengthening the base of the neck, stabilizing the shoulders and improving the alignment of the neck and head in relation to the rest of the spine.
We will begin with an essential therapeutic sequence of asanas for the neck and shoulders, and then continue with a practice focusing on intelligent back bending and inverted postures to help find ease, clarity and freedom.
