Neck, shoulder and upper back release workshop
Saturday 19th April 2014- 2.30- 5pm
@Yogaplace- Bethnal Green
In this workshop we will focus on releasing tightness in the neck, shoulder and upper back while also getting a balanced practice for the whole body.
We will work towards soothing the nerves and restoring greater alignment, vitality and comfort especially in the upper body.
The practice will begin with some breath work and gentle upper back openers to bring awareness and space to the designated area.
A fluid sequence will follow covering a wide range of poses to warm up the muscles, lubricate the joints and start to melt away accumulated stress and knots.
We will then move on to a sequence specifically designed to intelligently free up the upper body, shoulders and neck and decompress the joints.
You will learn simple yet efficient stretches and movements you can easily do anywhere to quickly release tension in your everyday life.
We will have a look at improving postural alignment and simple anatomy to gain a better understanding about the mechanisms of the body in this area. This should help avoiding re-building up tightness in the upper body.
In the last part of the workshop, we will move onto our back finishing with a floor sequence to further unwind before finally surrendering to a deep relaxation.
You may leave feeling freer, lighter and revitalised.
