  • Unlocking the Shoulders
    • 25/08/2018
    • This session begins with a 4 Direction Ceremony to refine your attention and work with compelling visualisations to bring the intent for the practice to life.
      The shoulders hold a huge amount of tension. This area of the body is designed to hold the head up and assist in the movement of the arms and when alignment suffers these muscles bind like straps to hold the body upright.
      This session will use Forrest Yoga poses and Myofascial techniques to begin to free up the areas around the shoulders, neck, shoulder blades and underarms to create more freedom of movement in the upper body as well as establish tools for working with these primary structural muscles.
      Suitable for all levels.
      Investment: £25
