Upper Back, Neck & Shoulders – Weekly Intermediate Class 219

Focus: Yoga for the upper back and shoulders. This week we are focusing on the neck and the regions of the body that surround it. The upper back and shoulders are key areas when working to improve the health of your neck. This class will compliment the neck variations included in our Weekly Advanced Class 219. It more broadly targets the thoracic spine and shoulders. In addition to poses that improve strength, mobility and stability the class also includes twisting variations that will help to release tightness and tension from the muscles associated with the upper back, shoulders and neck. 

Key Poses: Parighasana, parivrtta trikonasana, parivrtta ardha chandrasana.

Equipment: Mat, chair, blanket, 2 blocks.

Level: Intermediate

Duration: 50 min

    Hi Kristan, it is great to hear that you found the class helpful. It is definitely worth repeating if you have issues with your neck and shoulders. You may be aware that Rod will be conducting some live classes soon, so please keep an eye out for correspondence about this if you are interested in joining these classes.

    Thank you for another wonderful class. I have a stiff neck and tight shoulders and found this class to be very helpful and will definitely be repeating this one. Thank you for all of your wonderful classes, I learn something new with each one. I am looking forward to participating in a live class someday. Have a wonderful day. 😉
