AWAKEN - strength in your arms to support your vinyasa practice
The more stable your shoulder joints are, the stronger you’ll feel in weight-bearing asanas like plank pose, chatturanga, downward dog and more. In this class, Nicole will teach you some essential muscle activations you can do to set your shoulders in a healthy position, so that holding poses where you’re supporting yourself in the field of gravity feels light and effortless. Stay injury-free as you take your practice deeper!
