Awaken and Strengthen Your Upper Core

This class is designed to:

  • awaken and strengthen your upper core
  • help you to feel stronger in your upper body
  • release tight neck and shoulder muscles
  • create flexibility in your upper back
  • align your shoulder blades so you feel freer in your upper body
  • increase your overall arm and hand strength

On Anatomy:

The upper core, also called the pectoral girdle, includes the muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments of the torso, rib cage, thoracic spine, shoulder blades, shoulder joint, arms, collarbone, cervical spine, neck, and head. The upper core requires an upward vertical thrust.  And even though the upper core is strong it is more vulnerable to misalignment (than the pelvic girdle) without firm support of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Any habitual, unbalanced movement pattern can change the tone of the underlying shoulder blade muscles – overworking some muscles that causes tightness and neglecting other muscles.

Benefits:

  • Increased upper core strength
  • Increased arm and hand strength
  • Alignment of the shoulder blades
  • Balance of muscle activation on the left and right side of the body
  • Release of tight muscles in neck and shoulder muscles
  • Increased energy and lightness
  • Upright posture

Pranayama: Alternate nostril breathing

Asanas: Standing postures, Twists, Supported Inversions, Domes, and Forward Folds

Restoratives: Setu Bandha Sarvangasana and Savasana

Healing Injury? For those who have a history of injury or trauma and notice that the effects of the minor/major injuries are beginning to interfere with your everyday lives, please note that all of the yoga classes are naturally healing.

Each yoga class is designed to help release stored pain, anxiety, stress, or tension you may be experiencing so that vital, healing energy – prana – can move freely through the entire body. When vital energy is flowing freely (not obstructed), you experience positive emotions, revitalized energy, mental clarity, lightness, pain relief, and an overall sense of well-being.
