In this 60 minute yin yoga class for hips and shoulders we are going to pull and pressurize the deep tissue of the myofascial sling to relieve shoulder pain. Your shoulders are connected to your hips and hamstrings through myofascial lines. When we honour the way fascial trains move through your body we can have more success at relieving shoulder tension and pain. Drawing on Tom Myers theory of anatomy trains we will explore the myofascial sling that connects your shoulders to your mid back and hamstrings in this yin yoga full class.
When we practice yin yoga we are getting into the deeper connective tissue of the body that surrounds the muscles. This needs to be treated differently than muscles which respond well to rhythmic repetitive action. Therefore in a yin yoga class you will find long holds, where you relax the muscles, come into stillness so that the slow gentle traction can affect the deeper denser tissue that wraps around the muscles, joints and bones.
I love my fabulous finishers! If you make it all the way to the end of the class, put “my myofascial sling thanks you” in the comments. Thank you for liking and sharing this video with your friends who have shoulder pain.
