Do you often feel like your neck and shoulders are stiff and immobile or that you carry “the world” on your shoulders? Do you find yourself holding your breath?
Chronic neck and shoulder tension not only zaps your energy, it can cause shallow breathing, give rise to aching muscles, headaches and jaw tension, leaving you stressed and fatigued.
In this workshop we enquire into our unconscious habits, we use conscious breathing and release chronically tight muscles and connective tissue to reshape habitual holding patterns. We restore range of motion in our upper back and shoulders to create ease and unwind the neck.
We will look at the anatomy of your upper body (based on Thomas Myers Anatomy Trains) and do experiential practices using therapy balls drawn from Yoga Therapy and Somatics. You will leave feeling a sense of lightness in your upper body, and a deeper and easier breath.
