Ways to Work with Donna: Relaxed and Open Shoulders

Wow – you completed an Original Body Wisdom mini course on breath, hamstrings and shoulders. I hope you learned a lot and  have benefited by focusing on what actually happens in the body gives strength and resilience to your posture, your movements and your activities.

I hope you see how allowing your shoulders to be natural means you do not tighten  your chest and neck. This also helps your global breathing. The miracle of the body is that all of it’s genius integrates together. By applying an open focus, curiosity and the right movements you can approach yoga, sports, Pilates and all your activities with an effortless and supportive grace.

We have just touched the tip of the iceberg as to what is possible for ease and integrity in your own body or the bodies of students and clients.
