Pain in your shoulders, neck and upper back? Forward head carriage? Slouching, hovering over desks, and driving can cause stress to the upper body and spine, further complicated by aging and a range of other issues. If left unchecked, the spine can progress into an abnormal position called Hyper-Kyphosis. This workshop will present techniques to address this condition, and help re-pattern the upper spine into a more normal curve. A take home manual will be distributed!
Suitable for all levels. Students should be able to move up and down from the floor easily.

A chair is a very helpful tool to practice/understand the asanas; the ancients used vines to hang from trees and to develop seated poses. The benefits of using a chair include:
1. Establishing better alignment in familiar and more difficult postures
2. Alignment facilitates understanding
3. Practice of complex poses breeds discrimination and develops keen focus
This is an all levels workshop, appropriate for beginners and challenging for more seasoned practitioners
