This two-hour workshop is highly popular set of movements for the hips and shoulders — the two core areas that almost everyone can improve!
Whether it's injury, repetitive strain, aging, sports damage, stress, sedentary lifestyles, or a career in movement or dance — our hips and shoulders are often the places we all feel the greatest losses and limitations as we live our lives.
Almost everyone can enjoy hips and shoulders closer to the limitless freedom and fluidity young children do -- even people who think they have irreversible problems. Featuring the crowd favorite known as "Scapula Scoops", this class will teach all people and body types the fundamentals to achieving real ease and the grace of an athlete. It will also provide people with painful shoulder, hip, and back conditions the tools they need to heal and improve.
Because of the critical role shoulders play in wrist and arm conditions, this class is also very important for sufferers of conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, forearm pain, and more. The same is also true for the relationship between hip function and problems of the knees, ankles, and feet.
