The heart is the perfection of the whole organism. Therefore the principles of the power of perception and the soul’s ability to nourish itself must lie in the heart. ~Aristotle
The shoulders are in the realm of the 4th chakra, and the frame of the heart which rules our emotions, and the lungs which manifest the soul through breath. Similarly to our hips, they can be repositories for stress, anxiety, fear and pain. They are particularly susceptible to injury, especially if we are active and often, especially for us New Yorkers, tense and tight.
I'm offering a workshop this Sunday, June 4th from 4-6pm at Prana Yoga and Meditation at Full Cirlce in Harrison, NY that will combine gentle asana work with the use of props as well as restorative yoga poses and Reiki to help open up, soften, and relax the shoulders and release any energy that might be stuck or in need of extra love and attention in that part of the subtle body. #yoga #workshops #westchester #westchesteryoga #shoulders #anahatachakra #heart #reiki #openheartspaces #yogaeveryblessedday #moveandheal
