Creating Healthy Shoulders Through Yoga and Physical Therapy

Creating Healthy Shoulders Through Yoga & Physical Therapywith Angela Clark & Diana Zotos

We talk a lot about the shoulders in yoga. “Tight shoulders,” “flexy shoulders,” and “don’t sink into the shoulder joints” are all phrases you hear over the course of a class. But what does it all mean?

In this 4-hour workshop, join Angela Clark and Diana Zotos as they show you what a healthy functioning shoulder joint is, as well as what can happen when misalignments cause injury. We will look at the positioning of the shoulder joint and how it shifts in various yoga poses such as triangle, downward dog, chaturanga, and more.

Students will learn how to modify poses that have been hindered by limited shoulder mobility and walk away with a sequence to help facilitate a healthy shoulder joint. This is a great workshop if you have a shoulder injury or are looking to avoid one, and for teachers to gain a better understanding of what they are seeing in their classes.

Diana Zotos, PT, MSPT, RYT, CSCS is a physical therapist and yoga teacher whose passion is to treat patients by merging the teachings of physiotherapy and yoga.
