Thanks for this wonderful class Calvin. Any idea why my fingers are getting numb with the hands reaching up and palms turning backwards, little fingers towards the center?

That shoulder sequence was so innovative, and it exposed the weakness in my left shoulder that is flexible but not as integrated as my right one.

Enjoy transforming "shoulds" into "goods" in your shoulders. Join Andrea for this shoulder-oriented class. A loose grasp on a strap is suggested for this practice, as many of us tend to get a bit overly ambitious at the top of this sequence, only to find it unbearable mid-way through. Remind yourself that you are administering therapy, not torture.

The simplicity of these movements is misleading – they pack a punch. Listen to what your shoulder girdle is telling you and if you need to take a break then absolutely take one. Dull pain and sharp pain are very different indicators. Dull pain is what Mr. Iyengar calls “good pain”-- things shifting carefully. Sharp pain is our body throwing up red flags and telling us to stop what we are doing before we injure ourselves. It's a great opportunity to experience sthira sukham asanam (which means steady and sweet).
