The first of 2 Weekend Workshops at Green Mountain Crossfit in Morrisville, VT
Handstands and Hanging Shrugs: Yoga and Functional Movement for the Shoulders and Wrists
The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, and also one of the most commonly injured. Overhead positions of the arm, such as those needed for performing handstands, pull ups, or weightlifting above the shoulders require tremendous strength not only in the large muscles of the shoulder and upper back, but also in the small but indispensable muscles of the rotator cuff. Come explore ways to improve shoulder movement, reduce shoulder pain, and prevent injury in all kinds of overhead arm movements through improved rotator cuff strength and shoulder flexibility. Shoulder injury? Come on down! Happy shoulders? Keep them that way!
In each of the 2 workshops in this series we will explore anatomy, address existing and potential injuries, build strength in vulnerable areas, and enhance flexibility for ease of movement and improved mechanics. Expect stretching, strengthening, movement education, and some self massage with balls or rollers in each class.
