Shoulder Love!

Give your shoulders a little love with this new Pilates practice from Ashley Lopez!

 Shoulder Love!Shoulder Love

This is a practice designed to deeply work the muscles which support the shoulder joints, to create better mobility through gentle range of motion exercises and stretches, and to help students understand the common issue of chronic neck tension and how to work on decreasing it. We will go through a simple routine on the mat with two yoga blocks, and then proceed to a practice which incorporates a stretchy therapy/resistance band and a chair. Working with mindful movement, this workshop is intended to stabilize and strengthen your shoulders while releasing the neck. Be sure to consult your physician before beginning any exercise program, particularly if you have had any injuries in the past.
