  • Yoga Workshop with Manjunaga – Exploring Comfort & Ease in the Neck & Shoulders – Saturday 24 June 10-1pm
    Workshop exploring safe opening practices for the Shoulders & Neck
    The neck and shoulders can hold deep tension. Discomfort and holding in these areas can sometimes be due to lifestyle factors and emotional strains. eg sitting for long hours using a computer, or driving a car.
    During this workshop we will spend time exploring this through a mixture of gentle warming practices, including hydrating movements for the spinal midline, finding how a fluid spine can support deeper opening in our shoulders and neck. We will also build dynamic flowing sequences and stilling yin/restorative postures that can support opening in our body.
    Explore how these practices can build strength, flexibility, and deep relaxation.
