Workshop for Shoulders, Neck and Upper Back with Lynda Gill
Join us for an afternoon of practice that focuses on the shoulders, upper back, and neck!
We will concentrate on actions that:
increase flexibility in the upper back
balance the musculature of the shoulders, particularly the rotator cuff
relieve strain in the neck and shoulders
The shoulder joint is designed for freedom of movement, but many of our daily activities are done (or overdone) in such a way that develops tightness or injury in the shoulders and arms as well as in the neck and upper back.
In this extended class we will practice poses that bring mobility to the shoulder girdle while providing the stability so critical to the maintenance of shoulder health. Regular practice of these poses is an effective way to relieve a variety of chronic conditions of the joints in the neck, shoulders, elbows or wrists.
Developing strength and flexibility in the arms, shoulders and upper back also prepares the body for the classic inverted poses, Sirsasana (Headstand) and Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand).
As a counterpoint to the more active poses and therapeutic variations,
supported chest-opening poses will also be included. Passive, supported
poses allow the body to relax and passively stretch tight, overworked
muscles so that they can release and let go of tension.
"The practice of asana should be nourishing and illuminative."

Restorative Poses and the Power of Practice with Lynda Gill
Discover the power of a restorative practice!
One of the greatest gifts from the late yoga master, B.K.S. Iyengar, is the knowledge of how to use props and sequence poses so that we can reap the benefits of yoga when we need it most. Whether you suffer from headaches, physical or mental fatigue, or just need a break from the demands of work and family responsibilities, practicing these poses will bring you to a state of deep relaxation.
It is during this state of deep relaxation that healing begins.
Join us for an afternoon practice designed to quiet the nervous system and relieve the stresses that cause "dis-ease". Including these poses in your home practice will revitalize your body/mind and promote a sense of well being.
In today's fast-paced world these poses provide the relaxation so desperately needed by an overworked body or an over-stimulated mind.
