Our shoulders consist of multiple, relatively shallow joints, giving us the potential for high mobility in all directions…

But over time, as our movement patterns become increasingly repetitive and limited, this range is often compromised.

Without focused attention and routine maintenance, reduced range of motion in our shoulders — even if only in a couple of planes — can quickly sneak up on us.

This FREE 30-minute LIVE seminar offers a range of simple, accessible ways to boost shoulder movement in all directions.

You will learn:

  • What “normal” ROM actually looks like, and how to seek out and address areas of limitation
  • Active mobilization and MFR techniques to improve body awareness and muscle control
  • The influence of ongoing stress on shoulder position, and how simple passive practices that downregulate the nervous system can have surprising impact

*Students who wish to participate in the movement practices offered should bring a yoga block or foam roller and a blanket or large towel.
