Special focus series- Shoulders and upper back
7:00-8:00 pm Tuesday 13th Aug- 3rd Sep
A great series for those of you stuck behind a computer, cyclists, those that do heavy or repetitive labouring tasks or those worried about the hunch that has 'appeared' and want to know what to do about it.
This series explores the movements of the upper back and shoulders and how to start addressing the tightness in your upper back rather than hiding it with the 'shoulders back, chest up ' mantra for 'good posture'.
(No hanging experience required- but this class is great preparation for bringing back your inner monkey!)
Next series starts: 13th August
$15 per class or $55 for the series

Shoulder and upper back- 4 week special focus series
29 Jan, 5, 12, 19 Feb 2019
This 4 week series looks more closely at the movements of the shoulder, neck and upper back and some corrective exercise to bring new movement and awareness to these movement starved parts of our upper bodies.
Become familiar with specific upper body moves to help counter the effects of computer work/driving/the general lack of movement of our upper bodies in modern lives.
The focus will be on mobilising and stabilising the shoulder girdle and upper back and for you to become familiar with helpful moves you can incorporate into your non-exercise time, at work or at home. A perfect way to unwind your body from the effects of the working week.
