Workshop

Fixing Tight Shoulders 最佳狀態之肩 with Arthur Chiu

2 December 2023

About this workshop

It’s no surprise that one of the most common pain areas today are the shoulders and upper back. With modern life being focused on smart phones and computers, the shoulders are in a rounded position for long periods of time. Poor postural habits develop gradually and begins to cause a lot of stress on both the body and mind.

With the shoulders being a ball and socket joint, shoulder mobility can be complex. Our shoulders may move without too many restraints in one direction, yet be challenged as we move in another. This workshop will focus on introducing shoulder and chest opening exercises that students can adopt into their daily practice, which will help to find balanced flexibility, increase range of motion and maintain good posture going forward.

Suitable for all levels of practitioners, especially students who are looking for creative ways to mobilise their shoulders and chest.

Stability Before Mobility (30-min lecture + 60-min practice)

Afternoon Class 2
Deepening the Range of Motion (90-min practice)
