Opening the Chest and Shoulders - a New State of Energy, Movement based workshop
Some of the negative side effects of using a computer are that we find ourselves with frozen shoulders, sore forearms, and injured wrists.

This induces an emotional sense of release, brings the mind into stillness, and the body into a new state of energy. Open to all levels except absolute beginners. This movement workshop is both challenging and very healing.
