Muscle Imbalances, Neck and Shoulder Pain: Yoga Solutions

Course Information

After the last two years sell out events in Manchester we are delighted Julie Gudmestad is returning to teach a two-day workshop on the topic of Muscle Imbalances, Neck and Shoulder Pain.

Muscle imbalances can contribute to pain, injury, and chronic problems in any part of the body, and a thoughtful yoga practice can help to correct these imbalances. In this workshop, we will review the anatomy of important muscle groups, and how imbalances (strong vs. weak and tight vs. flexible) contribute to misalignments that set the stage for problems. We will also practice yoga poses and sequences to help correct imbalances, improve alignment and relieve pain.

Specific focus will be placed on the upper back, neck and shoulders as well as important muscle groups that include the trapezius, serratus anterior, and the rotator cuff.

This workshop is open to all. Some previous study of anatomy is helpful but not mandatory.
