Form is Function Presents: Shoulder Restoration.
Saturday 25 March, 1:00 to 3:00 pm
At the Aikido’Ka dojo
142 East McKnight Way, Grass Valley CA
Do your shoulders feel weak, stiff, sore, fragile? Have stretching and strength training failed equally badly in improving your shoulder situation? This workshop is for you. Join us to learn:
1) Popular “strength” exercises that actually destroy the rotator cuff, and what to do instead.
2) How to protect the shoulders by mobilizing the upper spine.
3) Exercises that combine shoulder mobility and dynamic stability.
4) A powerful strengthening drill that even our people with the most ravaged shoulders do pain free.
5) How to gently open shoulder joints to reduce inflammation and speed healing.
6) How to naturally position the shoulder for greatest stability, safety and strength in all activities.
Your teacher: chief instructor Eric Kenyon
“The number one injury that takes out snowboarders is shoulder injuries. And at the age of 25, my shoulders started to hurt every single time I would hit a big jump. . . . My shoulders would get these sharp, shooting pains. And I’m, like, I can’t believe this. I’m already getting taken out by shoulder injuries and pain by the age of 25 and I can’t believe this is already happening to me. Simple exercises, with very little time, and my shoulders started getting better and better and better and better. And now it’s been so long that I have had no pains in my shoulder that it’s not even an issue any more. It’s not even a thought process. It’s not even a hesitation.” – Evan Strong, Gold Medalist 2014 Paralympics and Form is Function athlete since 2012.
