Good Function of the shoulder girdle is dependent on intricate timings of the bones and first, the rotator cuff muscles.  Too much emphasis is on locking the scapula down.  Come to my online workshop to learn more.  All levels are welcome!

Anatomy Dances- Sensing the Shoulder Girdle with Lesley A. Powell

March 19, 2023. 2:00 -5:10 PM. $150
Online.  Recording will be made.

The shoulder girdle function is dependent on intricate timings of bone rhythms and phrasing of muscles.  As the hand moves in space, the movements of the bones and muscles are sequencing for good function.  Poor posture and cueing are locking the shoulder girdle down.  Through drawing and movement we will look at how to embody better function.

Embodiment of the muscles of the shoulder girdle is about waking the senses in your upper body. A dynamic shoulder girdle has many different flavors depending on the movement.

All are welcome. No experience is necessary in drawing.
