Saturday 25th november 13.00-16.00
With Sandy TszYan Leung
Posture correction workshop for rounded upper back and hunched shoulders.
Is your shoulder and neck pain bothering you? Do you try to remember to stand up straight, but find it hard to maintain? Does no amount of heart opening and shoulder opening poses help with bringing your upper spine upright? Well then, you are not alone. Rounded shoulders are the most common posture problem and the cause of lots of back and neck pain. Posture correction is not easy, and you cant always "just stand up straight" but they are thing you can do to strenghten and open the upper back.
In this workshop we will go through fundamental knowledge of how our shoulders, back and neck muscles affects our posture, and most importantly - what kind of exercises we can do every day to train and correct our posture.
In this workshop we will combine specialised, repetition-based strength excercises and static mobility excercises to help free up our thoracic spine and stabilise our shoulder, neck and shoulder blades in order to create a long-lasting impact in our posture. We will also learn to establish a routine that can make this practice manageable and doable. Anyone can attend, you don´t need prior experience with yoga.
What to bring:
Comfortable clothes, an open heart and two 1.5-2KG hand weights (or two bottles of wine, olive oil or water), a pen and paper.
Sandy spent the first 25 years of her life hunching - bad posture, weak muscles, and no amount of reminders from her loving mother seemed to help. Through the study of yoga and movement, Sandy learned, trained and developed a series of excercises and methods to free and strengthen her upper spine. While the work is no where near done - it has improved her life dramatically. Read more about Sandy her: Lærere
