For consideration: On Shoulder Injuries

July 1, 2013

  This spring at the Yoga Journal Conference in New York City, I had the pleasure to attend a special class for teachers, taught by one of my favorites, Elena Brower.  She asked the room if you were currently treating an injury and 80% of the class raised their hands.
