Yoga Challenge - October - Open, Strong Shoulders

Hello yogi's!

This month in our yoga challenge class we'll focus on shoulders! 

We all know shoulders can be a great storage spot for tension so learning to open and release stress is important for all of us. Open, flexible shoulders are also critical as we grow our way into more advanced asana. (Did you know the infamous wheel pose requires as much shoulder flexibility as spine flexibility? Indeed.) 

But as always, balance is the key in yoga so those open, mobile shoulders also need to be stable. And no pose challenges shoulder girdle stability like an arm balance or an inversion!

So, dear yogi friends this month we'll breathe and stretch our way into strong supple shoulders. Goodbye tension - hello strength, stability and mobility! 


  1. I love your writing style in these blogs. So accessible and welcoming. What do you think about adding the following... that our current tech heavy lifestyle promotes tight shoulders; also that over the course of the month, as we increase our shoulder flexibility we will develop our inversions and arm balances with care working towards handstand (or modified handstand) combing both arm balances and inversion.
