Neck & Shoulders
Sun, Feb 27, 2p – 4:30p
$30 by Feb 23; $35 after Feb 23
Explore your anatomy – theoretically & practically – in this highly interactive workshop. Co-presented by Shawn C. O’Neill, D.P.T. (Bayside Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation) & Satyam, this session will focus on developing a greater understanding of how our yoga postures (asanas) and related movements affect the health of our neck and shoulders. Particular attention will be given to the rotator cuff, thoracic extension, common shoulder injuries, as well as basic do’s and dont’s for keeping your shoulders mobile and strong. There will be maximum opportunity for dialog, inquiry, and modifications. While the class will address the “big anatomical picture” of the neck and shoulders, there will certainly be time to address personal health issues & concerns related with these areas. This is a unique opportunity to gain an expanded perspective of your yoga practice and enhance your ability to maintain proper care of your neck and shoulders. All are welcome – register early as we expect this to fill quickly.
Handouts given; please bring a pen; notebook, i-Pad or journal (optional).
Dr. O’Neill holds a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from University of Maryland – College Park, and a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from University of Maryland – Eastern Shore.
