This workshop explores ways to strengthen the upper body safely and develop a sense of security in the shoulders and arms. Part anatomy lesson, part practice, this workshop is a boon for yogis who have experienced rotator cuff or elbow injuries.
Richard reviews the muscular anatomy of the upper body. He then guides students through long holds and dynamic exercises. Using common poses, students gain insight into their shoulder and arm positions and develop strength. Students should be able to bear some weight on their hands, and their wrists should be free of recent injury.
