Episode 23: Q & A with Jason – Fun with Shoulder Anatomy!

Hi everyone!

On this episode Jason answers three of our listener questions and it just so happens that they all focus on some aspect of shoulder anatomy. We also talk about cats a lot. Here are the questions:

* Why do we flex the ankle in poses like Reclined Pigeon?
* Is “pull the shoulder blades down” a “bad” alignment cue?
* In Plank Pose, do you push strongly through the arms and upper back? Or soften the shoulders?

We recognize that it can be difficult to listen to a conversation about anatomy without visuals. To help you out, I put links to some of the shoulder-oriented posts and sequences we have on the blog.
