Description:

Shoulders are a dead giveaway of poor posture; this is where many people hold stress. The shoulder structure coming out of line is often the result of the stresses and strains of daily life, its easy to see rounded shoulders.  

When we hold ourselves this un aligned way, our upper back hunches, lifting the shoulders toward the ears, and our chest collapses, narrowing the space between the collarbones. All of this leads  to the head jutting forward, in turn creating  compression and tightening in the neck area.  It is not good as this energetic keeps us patterning towards more of the same. The Kapandji Physiology of Joints  Vol 3 states that “For every inch of Forward Head Posture, it can increase the weight of the head on the spine by an  additional 10 pounds”  This stress is not in the mind it is real.

This condition creates the potential for any number of physical ailments, including breathing difficulties, chronic headaches and back pain.

This shoulder sequence has been designed to open and lift the heart area, and includes exercises that draw the shoulder blades down the back which allows the returning of the head to a more neutral position, perched lightly and symmetrically on the top of the spine. 

 

Poor  shoulder structure has often been put in place over decades,in turn it takes many many repeats of a yoga practice to get the benefits. The work can take a few years to bear fruit and for your shoulders to come back to a good alignment.  Now you have system to help. So start with your journey to feeling better every day and know that you are now moving in the right direction. You will feel better every day.
