Shoulder Medley: Simple Actions Part I

299.00 for 1 month

The sessions in this Short Course are based on asana-inspired shoulder actions.  Each session is programmed like a ‘shoulder circuit’: in the first part of the session, a set of actions are done slowly with detailed explanations, and in the next part, they are repeated at a faster pace (and if you wish to do a little more, you may repeat the circuit again).  This session has the simplest of the shoulder actions, and it also details a few practices that will be repeated in th subsequent sessions of this Short Course.  Good preparation for the rest of the sessions - but also good to be done just by itself.  Also look at ‘Simple Actions - Part II'. For a comprehensive understanding of the subject, we recommend that you work with all the sessions of this Short Course.

We recorded the ‘Shoulder Medley’ Series in response to requests for shorter duration sessions, that quickly ease shoulder discomfort – especially from long hours of sitting.  The sessions in this Series are based on asana-inspired shoulder/ shoulder blade/ upper back actions.  Taken together, they cover the entire gamut of shoulder actions and positions.  Each session is programmed like a ‘Shoulder Circuit’: in the first part of the session, a set of actions are done slowly with detailed explanations, and in the next part, they are repeated at a faster pace (and if you wish to do a little more, you may repeat the circuit again).  The 3 parts of this Short Course proceed in the order:

    • Simple Actions: Part 1 and Part 2
    • Push and Pull: Part 1 and Part 2
    • Rotator cuff: Part 1 and Part 2

We recommend that for your first attempt, you try the sessions in this order.  We encourage you to mix and match in the subsequent attempts.

Note:

  • while these actions and positions are great for overall shoulder health, for shoulder strengthening, some of them might not be suitable if you have a shoulder or neck injury.
