Most people have some strain or compression in the shoulder, especially on their dominant side. This is due to trauma, repetitive strain, or chronic pulling that effects stability of the neck. In this class we practice ways to release the upper arm, shoulder and neck. We practice movements to stretch, strengthen and stabilize the musculature around the shoulders. We begin mobilizing the shoulders on the floor followed by seated and standing poses that prepare the shoulders for weight bearing.
