The Shoulder Girdle: Support for Self-Expression


  • Fauntleroy Schoolhouse 9131 California Ave. SW Seattle, WA 98136 USA (map)

A 3-day exploration of the influence of shoulder girdle integration on the actions and gestures of work and play, on our interactions with others, and on breathing, core stability and gait. This workshop is designed for manual therapists and somatic educators (Pilates, yoga, dance) to gain body reading confidence, skill in verbal cuing, and success in designing practical and transformational solutions for movement dysfunctions.

  • Understand the shoulder patterns and problems we feel in ourselves and notice in others.

  • Review the biomechanics of the arms, shoulders and spine.

  • Practice interventions that develop shoulder support and improve arm and shoulder articulation.

  • Develop articulation and support for gestures of giving, receiving, welcoming and boundary-setting.

  • Use movement education to help musicians, artists, dancers, athletes, computer programmers and new mothers eliminate shoulder symptoms.
