Yoga Workshop - The Life Centre, Notting Hill : June 2019

Release Your Head, Neck and Shoulders

Do you have a tight neck and shoulders?  A tense upper back?  Tension headaches?

With desk-bound jobs, tight deadlines and our current addiction to smartphones, it’s no wonder!  Join Catherine to give your shoulders and upper back a sensory treat, let go of deep seated tensions, and experience space and freedom in this overused area of the body.

During this workshop, we will:

  Learn about the anatomy of the shoulder girdle and upper spine

  Explore the relationship between the shoulders, arms, ribs, upper spine and the breath

  Relax your head and neck

  Learn some gentle, deliberate and focused techniques to help you change movement habits and release tensions which may restrict you in everyday life.
