About The Event
Take the weight of the world off your shoulders with this informative, explorative and supportive livestream workshop. Elise will give guidance on how to balance this area with better symmetry and alignment. You'll also learn how to safely increase flexibility and strength in this area of the body, taking into account the whole body to assist and support a healthy neck and shoulder condition.
The last part of the workshop will explore the theme of, “Live from your heart, not your head,” with heart opening, restorative poses with breath awareness. This practice is effective for reducing the stresses of responsibility that physically manifest in the shoulder, neck and upper back.
Teachers are invited to join this workshop to learn more about how to help students with chronic neck and shoulder issues. Not intended for those in acute pain or with acute neck/shoulder injuries. All levels are welcome.
