Anatomy in Motion: The Shoulder Girdle

In this workshop we will take time to look at, touch, and move our skeletons- focusing on the shoulder girdle. Aided by external visual aides (drawings, photos, 'hambone' the skeleton) we will locate and discuss commonly referenced anatomical landmarks within the Pilates repertoire. We will see and experience how we are able to slide our scapula, rotate and lift our collarbones, and find internal and external rotation of the humerus bones. Finding a clearer understanding of the bone rhythms underlying movement will allow us to move more fully, release tension in all those 'stuck' places, and work harder where we need to. We will work individually and in partners, there will be plenty of time for questions. Come prepared to move. This workshop is appropriate for beginning or advanced students as well as teachers interested in deepening their practice and their cueing techniques.
Early Bird Cost is 60$ before July 1st for the 2.5 hour workshop, $75 after July 1st
