In this lesson you will explore your shoulder´s pathways.

You will gain a better understanding of how your shoulder is related to other parts of your body, helping you to move with more ease and freedom in your upper body. 

Most of this lesson is done lying comfortably on your side. 

 

Curiosities in this lesson: 

  • How dependent or independently can your shoulder move from your chest?
  • Where is your shoulder´s neutral position? 
  • Which pathways are familiar/unfamiliar, comfortable/uncomfortable? 
  • What is *your* easy way?

 

What you´ll need for the lesson: 

  • a comfortable place to lie down on the floor on a carpet, mat, or folded blanket
  • a bath towel nearby to fold to a comfortable height for side-lying head support. A smooth, level surface will allow your head to shift and roll.

  • If your mat feels too hard for comfortable side-lying, lay a smooth blanket or two on it.

 

 

How should I do the lesson?

  • Take breaks as needed. You can always pause or repeat the lesson.
  • The movements are suggestions and not prescriptions. This is about your individual way - find out what feels good, what is interesting and what you are curious about. 

 

Clarifications: 

  • Cardinal directions are relative to YOU: when you’re lying on your side, up is toward the top of your mat, down is toward the bottom. Forward is directly toward the wall in front of you and backward is toward the wall behind you.
  • See the images as a clarification of the two main positions. First, the hand is in a "push-up position" in front of your chest. Your fingers poiting more or less upwards towards your face. The second configuration is with the top arm long on, resting on your side. 
  • Whenever you’re resting on your back, if you want your knees bent and your feet standing, let your feet and knees be comfortably apart, about the width of your hips.
