Strength & Mobility in an often-ignored Shoulder Position (FREE Resource)

0.00 for 1 month

The 'rotator cuffs' are involved in the more complex shoulder actions that come up in various asanas: especiall back arches and inversins.  Rotator cuffs are a group of 4 muscles (and their tendons) that stabilise the shoulder joint, and also fine-tune many of the movements at the shoulder joint.  Because of the nature of the shoulder joint, these muscles can be a little delicate.  This is a short tutorial.  For a comprehensive understanding of the subject, we recommend that you work with all the sessions of the Short Course 'Shoulder Medley'

Duration: 12 mins.

Level: Beginner, Experienced Beginners. Intermediate

Props needed: any support for the head in a lying down position
