What are the Guidelines for teaching Yoga to people with Rotator Cuff/Shoulder Issues?
Answer from Justine
The shoulder joint gives us incredible mobility, but that comes with a price tag of less stability. Justine shares what poses are riskier to the shoulder and rotator cuff as well as ways to release chronic contraction in the muscles. Learn how to release subscapularis, which has a cascading effect of releasing all the muscles and tendons of rotator cuff. If someone has rotator cuff pain learn how to place the joint most snug in the socket so there is less risk to the tendons.
