Shoulders ~ Strength and stretch. Mon 530 Shanti Vinyasa

Too much we allow the world to churn us and our shoulders take much of the stress. Tonight we will open the shoulders as well as strengthen them with the use of flex bands to help us find the smaller, deeper muscles.

Pranayama: Sahaja, Dirgha 

Warm up of cat rolls, thread the needle, chest expansion and side bending.  To the wall for Doug Keller work on the shoulders.  This is some of the best awareness work as well as being very strengthening and yet easy to remember.  Do this before class if you come early.  From here we will bring out the flex bands and now the harder work starts.  Down to the floor to feel the strength of these newly aware muscles with Dolphin plank, regular plank and perhaps side plank.  Using the strap to unwind and stretch the muscles with some Eric Shiffman shoulder openers.  Dandasana chest expansion, kneeling reverse hands.  Aromatherapy, Savasana
