Optimize Your Shoulder Girdle - 4 CEC's - Rachel Taylor Segel

We can most swiftly and succinctly enable our clients to get the most out of each exercise and each workout when we can see joints articulating with balanced effort and in an orderly movement sequence. This is especially true and vital with the shoulder joint and girdle as it affects so many other parts of the body - especially our breathing mechanism and spine!

By learning to facilitate even a small percentage of optimum movement in our client’s shoulder girdle – whether they are healthy, pregnant or postpartum, or even injured – we can help our clients relieve neck pain, shoulder cuff injuries, carpel tunnel syndrome, and more. Plus enhance and deepen their breathing! We’ll review and practice key Pilates exercises which access and strengthen the shoulder girdle in order to rehabilitate or to prepare for Level IV-V exercises, as well as learn some archival exercises created by Mr. Pilates to specifically balance and bring control and freedom to the shoulder girdle and the arm and hand.
