Shoulder work in asana practice, with refined actions that spiral from the hands deep into the shoulders and heart, helps us to keep the shoulder joints aligned and free from damage and irritation, while maintaining the space of the upper body.
These are more than simply physical actions: the subtle and empowering energies of Prana and Apana Vayu — receiving and drawing in, balanced with letting go and expanding — can play a profound role in going deeper into these actions, especially when joined to the breath. We will focus on simple actions that can be applied in the poses, as well as self-care exercises related to marma that can be incorporated into your practice, and used to maintain the benefits of your practice even when there are gaps in your opportunities for practice. These practical actions will be threaded together through the theme of receiving, centering and expanding — Prana and Apana.
