Dropping the weight of your shoulders


Do you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, like Atlas? Are you ready to let go of the pressure? Come play with us in this Yoga class!

The Rotator Cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder and allow for its extensive range of motion.

These muscles arise from the Scapula ( shoulder blades ) and they connect to the head of the humerus ( arm bone.)

They form a “Cuff” at the shoulder joint.

The Rotator Cuff Muscles main functions are:

-abduction ( moving the arm outward, away from the trunk )

-internal rotation of the shoulder

-external rotation of the shoulder

In class today we will find slide and glide in the shoulder girdle and we will strengthen and stabilize the muscles.

In our breathing we will let go of tension in the shoulders and lighten up….

Please bring a BLOCK or BOOK to class.

And a STRAP, BELT or SCARF.

Much love,

Marielle

Shoulders

A man crosses the street in rain, stepping gently, looking two times north and south, because his son is asleep on his shoulder. No car must splash him. No car drive too near to his shadow. This man carries the world’s most sensitive cargo but he’s not marked. Nowhere does his jacket say FRAGILE, HANDLE WITH CARE. His ear fills up with breathing. He hears the hum of a boy’s dream deep inside him. We’re not going to be able to live in this world if we’re not willing to do what he’s doing with one another. The road will only be wide. The rain will never stop falling. -Naomi Shihab Nye
