Shoulders: Alleviating Pain
Saturday, July 8 from 2:30-5:30pm
Shoulder and neck discomfort and pain are common ailments in the body, often stemming from physical and emotional tension in these areas. This workshop will focus on balancing the strength and flexibility necessary in the shoulders to develop and sustain full range of motion. Self-massage techniques will focus on releasing tension from the neck, jaw, and shoulders. Especially helpful for those that have had prior rotator cuff strain/sprain or suffer from upper back and neck tension.
Hips: Releasing Tension
Sunday, August 6 from 2:30-5:30pm
Spinal health and posture begins with pelvic mobility. This workshop will focus on strengthening and stretching the muscles of the hips (hip flexors, glutes, quads, and hamstrings) and incorporate techniques of dynamic and static stretch and self massage to help release tension in the hips to beneficially influence the posture and movement of the spine. Especially helpful for those suffering from chronic low back tension or pain.
