DAILY SCHEDULE: Sunday 7:30-9:00 pm, Monday –Thursday 8:30-11:30 am and 1:45-3:45 pm, Friday 9:00-11:00 am

Gain an intellectual and embodied understanding of shoulder function through palpation, mobility, and stability exercises, hands-on adjustments, and best practices for stress relief and injury management. Each day of this program begins with a two-hour athletic training and recovery class incorporating The Roll Model® therapy ball self-massage followed by an innovative Yoga Tune Up functional movement session for your wrists, shoulders, core, upper back, and neck.

Discover new ways to care for your body as you explore. Injuries welcome.

Experiential anatomy practices and self-care strategies for your upper back, neck, shoulders, and arms

Ways to improve strength, mobility, and breath for more body awareness in sport and yoga

Innovative warm-ups and cool-downs to improve performance and reduce pain.

For movement educators, this program offers new ways to incorporate smart shoulder mechanics into your classroom to enhance your teaching. This course qualifies for Yoga Alliance continuing education credit.

Each day we will practice 9am-12pm & 1pm-3pm

This ensures that you have plenty of time to relax, take Kripalu classes, go shopping, walk the meditation circle, take a hike or schedule a spa treatment!

The food at Kripalu is delicious and I'm already looking forward to no cooking and cleaning while teaching!

There is also a jacuzzi, a lake and a fitness center to explore.

I will be organizing optional group activities: Picnics on the Hill, group meals in the Great Dining Hall, Berkshire Mountain Hikes, Movie Night and Game Night in our practice studio.

Feel free to bring slacklines, frisbees, hula hoops, musical instruments, etc.

It's going to be fun! I hope you can make it.
