Shoulders Mobility for Heart Openers

Shoulder Mobility for Heart Openers

This workshop focuses on how to improve shoulder range of motion within the context of heart openers. We focus primarily on the action of Retraction in the scapula, and strengthing the back body muslces that enable spinal extension. This workshop makes for a great foundation for the shoulder girdle as it tends to be the neglected aspects of the shoulder girdle. That said its great as an introduction to this series, but I also recommend coming back to it after the Arm Balance workshop because it will reset your shoulders and neck.

The Shoulder Reset Workshop

Shoulder Reset

Let’s review the key points in this workshop:

The Gleno Humeral Joint: where the arm bone (humerus) inserts into the shoulder. AKA shoulder joint

The Scapula-costal joint: the shoulder blades move around the costals (ribs)
Mobilizing the shoulder blades reduces Gleno-humeral joint stress.

Downward Dog Actions: Push the ground away (upward rotation of scapula), Lift the arm pits/head of arm bone up (posterior tilt the scapula), and externally rotate the upper arm bones – biceps forward

Chaturanga Actions: Hands Wider, Shoulder blades start protracted and slowly move toward retraction as the elbows bend. The best exercise to strengthen the muscles that slow down the retraction, and will also support your jump backs is the multi-part pushups we did from the ground to plank on knees to full plank. Reminder to Keep the head of the arm bone back when lowering – do not anterior tilt the scapula, head of the arm bone back will create posterior tilt of the scapula.

Bound postures: the bound shoulder actions are the opposite of chaturanga – ALLOW the head of the arm bone to roll forward and down, and your arm will be able to go back more easily. This is ok when you aren’t weight baring.
Again it was a true pleasure to share this experience with you, I hope you enjoyed learning and practicing!
