Movement Based Osteopathy- Shoulder Connections
- 1-4pm Sunday 18th March 2018
- £30 + £2 booking fee
- The Dance Space @ The Island Bristol
A workshop for professional movers who use their shoulders in unusual ways. Supporting hand balancers, acrobats, aerialists, climbers & dancers to develop sustainable training practices. This workshop will help to effectively build these practises into training by developing fundamental and physical understanding of the shoulder mechanism and it’s connecting joints, when in motion.
In this workshop we will examine the structure and function of the shoulder joint and its connections and support allies; the spine, elbow and wrist. Skeleton models and anatomy diagrams are our jumping off point for physical exploration. The intention is to build a sensory palette of joint integrity and supportive alignment, with the aim of developing functional movement habits applicable to any movement situation. It takes courage and persistence to examine our movement patterns but the return can be a freedom and strength in movement that is full of joy.
