Shoulders & Self-Expression
with Mary Bond
Exploring The Influence of The Shoulder Girdle On Our Gestures
July 13-14, 2-4:30PM
How do our shoulders relate to our bodies as a whole? How do they influence the spine, ribcage, pelvis and feet? Join Mary Bond for an exploration of the influence of the shoulder girdle on the actions and gestures of work and play, on our interactions with others, and on breathing, core stability and gait.
~ Understand the shoulder patterns and problems we feel in ourselves and notice in others.
~ Review the biomechanical relationships between the arms, shoulders and spine.
~ Practice sensory exercises to develop shoulder support for opening the heart and freeing the breath.
~ Develop fluency and support for gestures of giving, receiving, welcoming and boundary-setting.
~ Use our practice of yoga to deepen embodied use of our arms and shoulders.
