Using anatomy and sensation, David teaches you how to engage the muscles around the shoulder girdle, upper back and chest in a way that effectively stabilizes the shoulders when bearing weight. Learning this is essential, especially when practicing poses like plank and chaturanga. This video is part 1 of a 2-part series. In the next video, you will learn how to safely build strength in those muscles.

I love the simplicity of this short video. This really helps establish a good foundation.

I watched this earlier in my shoulder's recovery, and I knew it was important, but it felt so painful I forgot about it. Coming back now, I realize I could have used some help, maybe from a physical therapist. If maintaining this shoulder position is very difficult, consider getting help to rebuild proper alignment rather than let the problem drag on like I did! Thanks, David.
