Watch now to learn Yoga Therapy techniques to heal injuries of arm and shoulder. In these video workshop Justine and Monique discuss the important role of the scapula (shoulder blade) and the humerus (arm bone) in the shoulder joint, and how to work with arm alignment to alleviate pain and prevent injury. We will explore the anatomy of the shoulder, explain postural misalignments of the arm and the resulting issues of arm pain and numbness, bone spurs, swelling, bursitis, bicep tendon displacement, deltoid tendonitis, insomnia, anxiety, headaches, and even (surprisingly!) hip and low pain back. Learn the important asana modifications every yoga professional should know to keep students safe and help them start healing from their shoulder pain.
After this workshop you’ll understand:
- how the alignment of the shoulder plays an integral role in shoulder movement and injury,
- the anatomical reasons we all tend to round forward as we age,
- how shoulder position effects nerve conduction and blood flow to the arm,
- shoulder bursitis,
- bicep tendon displacement,
- deltoid tendon bone spurs and pain,
- the connection between shoulder and hip misalignment,
- the psycho-emotional elements of shoulder injury and pain,
- body reading techniques for shoulder issues,
- Yoga therapy interventions for shoulder issues,
- Asana modifications for students with shoulder issues.
