…. Because while Sun Salutations offer the invigorating and empowering opportunity to strengthen, flow and sweat, they also include some pretty tough postures. Issues can arise when these sequences are repeated multiple times without attention to proper form and execution. Rotator cuff muscles and other shoulder stabilizers can be compromised, which can lead to discomfort, fewer benefits, poor posture, or worst case, injury.
In this two hour workshop, we will step through the basics of the sun salutation and some other common and challenging postures you might encounter in a typical vinyasa class. We will examine and refine our own half series, looking for ways to make our practice the safest and most sustainable it can be. We will practice drills and flows that encourage strength and stability in the shoulder joint to keep our practice powerful and safe. You will leave with the knowledge and confidence to practice Vinyasa yoga with your own tools and enhancements.
