Our neck functions to position our head for seeing, hearing, and communicating. Our shoulders are meant to allow our arms and hands to reach, grasp, and push in a large range. Easy enough, right? So why do our clients experience so much difficulty and discomfort in their neck and shoulders? Poor postural habits, learned physical attitudes, and our universal use of computers probably contribute. But, as Pilates and Yoga teachers, are we helping our clients retrain bad patterns or just adding new ones?
In this Movement Science Made Simple course we will:
• Study the organization of the head, neck, and shoulder girdle in common Pilates exercises and Yoga asanas.
• Examine the relationship between the arms, shoulder girdle and trunk in both open and closed kinematic chains. We know poor use of the neck and shoulders when we see it, but what are we really seeing?
• Learn simple exercises and gentle hands-on techniques for mobilizing the neck and shoulders and re-patterning their movement.
