Shoulder & Neck Focus - Yamuna Bodyrolling
in South London
Do you carry the world on your shoulders?
Your head, arms, and torso all extend from the shoulders. Unfortunately the shoulders and neck are a major point of stress in the body, with injuries and built up of tension very common in this area. In our day-to-day desk-based lives, we often find ourselves literally pulling our upper bodies into our computer screens. Tension rides up into our shoulders and neck and the result is chronic pain and restrictions in the upper thoracic area of the spine.
Through rolling along specific lines, this unique form of therapeutic bodywork creates space and mobility to restore the range of motion in every direction as well as heal injuries. Tension will dissipate and you will feel rejuvenated, light and open in the shoulders, neck and upper back. More importantly, you will learn how to intuitively release tension and restriction in your own body and be master to your our pain free neck and shoulders.
This session is part of our ongoing series of monthly Yamuna Bodyrolling (YBR) workshops. Fundamentally, Bodyrolling enables us to:
- maintain our bodies, preventing injuries
- keep the body moving freely and without restriction at every age
- improve circulation
- keep the nerve roots of the spine activated and metabolically strong
- keep the bones healthy and young to maintain the general health and well being of the body
This workshop will help to reorganise the upper body, bringing it back to optimal funciton. Using props created by Yamuna, you will be lead through routines to:
- tone and elongate muscles
- release the spine
- improve alignment
- expand the lungs and deepen the breath
- relax the nervous system
- increase blood flow and circulation
- stimulate nerve roots
- increase metabolism
