The Shoulder Revolution

February and March I am going to dive deeper into the function of the shoulder. 

The shoulder girdle has to be dynamic and strong at the same time.  Strength does not mean locking or fixing down the scapula.  We first are going to explore the bone rhythms of the shoulder girdle.  Healthy scapular humeral rhythm is the precursor to great function of your arms and core.  

Teaching about the movement of the bones is an excellent way to learn about correct phrasing of bones and muscles.  March we will dive into enhancing muscular connections.

Anatomy Dances: Dynamic Stability is an new Call Core to Arms

This workshop goes deeper into shoulder mechanics.  Open and closed chains movements require different coordination of the shoulder girdle and core.  How is your plank pose different and/or the same from a arm circle in open space.  Dynamic stability of the shoulder girdle is a dance with the hand, scapula and the torso.  Coordination is key for correct mobility and strength.   Past cues really have locked down the movements of the scapula and the torso.  Myths of shoulder stability are creating more problems.  In this workshop we will learn new ways to train the nervous system about new connections.

  • Muscular connection of shoulder girdle and torso
  • Coordination of hand – scapula to the head – tail connection
