Relax Your Shoulders - Liberate Your Neck
 

Imagine the tips of the shoulders lifted by balloonsImagine Your Head Is a Balloon - Franklin Method ExerciseMany people complain of stiff necks, tight, stiff shoulder muscles and soreness in the whole neck / shoulder region. In this workshop we will explore how we can leave the stiffness, soreness and tension behind by finding how our neck and shoulders can work in a free flowing and functional way. We will use imagery, self touch, experiential anatomy and movement to rediscover balance and wholeness in our shoulders and necks. By understanding how the design of our shoulders and necks has evolved we will gain insight into how we can move and live with the design - rather that against it as we so often try to do. When we live in our body's design we can move more freely for sport, dance and everyday life.

Using Franklin Balls and Therabands we will explore some toning and releasing exercises to help organise and strengthen the muscles and joints of the neck and shoulder girdle. When we combine these movement exercises with the use of imagery that is so special to Franklin Method we achieve some truly great results—shoulders and necks that can move and flow with great grace and flexibility.
