neck & shoulders
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The shoulder in particular is the most complex joint in the whole body and the neck is a strong structure supporting the head. The modern life stresses the neck and shoulder when we sit long periods at the computer typing and hunch over mobile or tablet. Shoulder is part of the kinematic chain with the elbow and wrist so any work with these two will also affect the shoulders and then further the neck. This workshop is addressing the shoulder and neck challenges, how the daily life affects and how yoga can help to alleviate the tension in the neck and shoulders. The workshop will cover anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder and neck and how yoga can alleviate the pain and stiffness caused by sedentary life.
In this workshop you will learn the following:
Shoulder and neck anatomy
Shoulder and neck biomechanics
Anatomical movements of the shoulder and neck
How yoga impacts the health of the shoulders and neck

About the instructor: Jatta Tjurin
Jatta's yoga path started in London 2001 and she felt the invigorating benefits of yoga on the body and mind. She got more deeply involved in the practice of Ashtanga in Dubai 10 years ago and was lucky to practice with many reverent teachers such as David Swenson, Richard Freeman, Petri Raisanen and John Scott. She has made two trips to Mysore to study at KPJAYI with Sharat Jois and will be applying to go practice with him.
She is a 500h+ certified ashtanga teacher from Tattvaa Yoga Shala in Rishikesh and Ashtanga Rocket from It's YogaSatellite. Jatta is a hands on teacher and likes to connect with her students on a physical and mental level. The understanding of the body and mind connection is prevalent in her classes and she cultivates the deeper side of yoga and at the same time keeps her classes fun, inspiring and energizing.
She has a passion for the philosophy side and keeps studying Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads and Advaita Vedanta. She feels that the practice is only asana if not backed up by the yoga philosophy.
