Playbacks and delayed viewing are not available. One-on-One sessions may be arranged, please inquire if needed.

Fill your tool-kit with experiential anatomy practices and self care strategies to heighten your understanding of the upper torso and its limbs. Improve strength, mobility and integrated body awareness. Master the multiple simple and complex articulations of the upper body to improve posture and performance while reducing pain.

*You’ll be guided through a variety of observation and assessment techniques that can be used in-person or when teaching online. In this context we will discuss various injury scenarios.

*In true Yoga Tune Up® style we will learn some novel shoulder movements (and the theory behind them) for you to enhance your in-class teaching or personal practice.

*An essential component of healthy movement is the ability to come into a relaxed state and become aware of how your body IS in stillness and movement. To that end we will practice some body meditation and relaxation techniques.

*There will be several performance-focused workshops that incorporate both self-massage techniques using a variety of Roll Model® Therapy Balls and movement-based sessions loaded with out-of-the box moves.

This Shoulders Immersion Training course is appropriate for students and movement educators who wish to deepen their knowledge and somatic understanding of the human body.
