Neck and Shoulders
Gravity can have a devastating affect on our bodies over time. Lack of exercise, bad postural habits, and poorly designed work and home environments, all can lead to major health impacts on the neck and shoulder. It is common to see people with sagging, caved in chests, accompanied by rounded or hunched backs. All of this is unnecessary and reversible with a consistent application of yoga. Opening the frontal chest alone does wonders for restoring vitality and deep breathing. Add to that relaxing the back muscles and you will change the way you stand and appear to the world. Come prepared to name a pose you do that doesn't feel good in the neck or the shoulders and have Gabriel show you what you can do differently to make that pose feel better and pain free.
