This class is a deep release for the shoulders and upper back, making it perfect for a variety of people, including musicians, new parents, office workers and athletes. It targets all of the muscles connecting to the upper back and shoulders, providing relief from tightness, aches and pain... all in less than 40 minutes!



Second time I do this class.

Second time I do this class. The first time I found it really difficult and thought my body would ache terribly the next day. Well... no not much pain the next day just a wonderful feeling of being taller and more free. This helps my posture a lot. My full time work with preschoolers require bending down and sitting on very low chairs continually and my thighs, neck and shoulders felt so tight. I was developing odd pains in my left leg. This practice corrects my posture and gives me energy. Thank you.

Laptop shoulder relief

This is such an amazing practice for me after I sit typing at a laptop all day. At the end of the day my shoulders are around my ears. This is starting to correct years of damage by me. Thank you.

After a long intense day of doing translations on the computer, I had so much neck, shoulder, and upper back tension. I debated taking a hot bath or doing this and glad I chose this. I feel like a rag doll and will surely fall fast asleep. Thank you so much for a great class.

Ankle pain

One problem that I encounter with a lot of yoga is difficulty maintaining positions that involve sitting on my heels. After about a minute, it really starts to burn, , and I have to sit up. Any suggestions?

Burning Feet

Yes, there are two approaches. You can put something (a bolster, block, pillow, folded blanket) under your bum to take pressure off your knees and you can slip a rolled up hand towel under your ankles for some relief there.
Let me know how it goes!

Just what I needed!

A very thorough class that really helped loosen the knots in my upper back. Way better expertise and quality than the other youtube videos I tried for the same area.
