Join Andrea Marcum for this intermediate/advanced shoulder therapeutics class. A loose grasp on a strap is suggested for this practice, as many tend to get overly ambitious at the top of this sequence, only to find it unbearable mid-way through. Remind yourself that you are administering therapy, not torture. The simplicity of these movements is misleading – they pack a punch. Listen to what your shoulder girdle is telling you and if you need to take a break then do so. Dull pain and sharp pain are very different indicators. Dull pain is what Mr. Iyengar calls “good pain”-- things shifting carefully. Sharp pain is our body throwing up red flags and telling us to stop what we are doing before we injure ourselves. Enjoy!
Props: straps and blocks
