Deep Tissue Techniques for the Chest, Diaphragm, and Shoulders with Brian Utting

Saturday, Oct 20

The chest and diaphragm are often overlooked as primary contributors to back and shoulder issues. They are the source of our breath and our taking in of life. These core muscles are often tight, constricting breathing, energy flow, and movement. The shoulders, in turn, are meant to float freely on the ribcage, but they are often restricted, stuck down, and in pain. Come prepared to go a little deeper in this class, and to push and explore your edges a bit.
