| What to expect |
When you strengthen the weakest muscles in the shoulder area it will keep you save to do intense poses as arm balances, headstands and handstands but it will also keep you save in doing vinyasas, chaturangas and downward dogs (Adho mukha svanasana).
You will be as strong as your weakest (link) muscle. In your shoulder area the back of the shoulders and your serratus anterior are mostly the weaker ones. When these muscles stay weak and you do poses where you need to use these muscles they will not support you effectively and you can end up with injuries. When you start making these muscles stronger you will balance out your muscles and this is healthy for your joints, they will damage less and it will prevent injuries or sort out injuries.
So if you have injuries in the neck or shoulder area or you want to strengthen the shoulder area to start doing more intens and advanced poses, this is your workshop.

With Pralaya yoga we work on different levels of the physical body: muscular, ligaments and fascia. By strengthening the weaker muscle the body will stretch the thight/ strong muscle. It will open the strong side and gives more space and freedom in the thight sides. This way you will create balans in the muscular parts, less one-sided pressure in en on the joints, more blood flow through the ‘weaker’ muscles and it let more energy flow throughout the fascia.
