Shoulder Openers with Daniel Hickman

In this therapeutic yoga session, participants will focus on specific movements, stretches and asanas, that help bring balance to the forty-four muscles that are connected with this very important area of the human body.

Participants will explore therapeutic yoga techniques designed to:

alleviate shoulder, upper back, chest and neck pain
improve general posture
bring awareness to the ’text neck’
augment the cardio-pulmonary system
boost sleep & rest

In the Ayruvedic perspective, the anatomy of the shoulders is associated with the 4th chakra (annahatta) and the element of air. So, the shoulders will often provide insight into how a person breathes and feels. Some persons might have more forward rounded shoulders (guarded) while others might have shoulders that are overly rolled back (arrogant).

‘The shoulders are not only the fulcrum for the arms, but the energetic location of protection and relaxation.’ – Daniel E. Hickman
