Neck and shoulders are the Tuesday evening focus for the month of May. We will explore strengthening and stabilizing movements for the shoulder muscles and apply those actions within the yoga postures. Since many of us hold the world on our shoulders a good portion of class time will be dedicated to shoulder and neck releases and relaxation.
The photos above show a variation of gomukasana. As you can see my son can easily clasp his hands together, while I can barely touch my fingertips. This posture shows several components of shoulder mobility, and teaches us where we have restrictions.
This will be a great class for those of you keen on learning a bit of shoulder anatomy, interested in the ranges of motion of your shoulders and wanting an evening wind-down.
