Learn about the anatomy of the shoulder, and what creates the shoulder's incredible range of motion, and its tendency to become injured.

Instructors Amy Anderson and Gregory Gonzales begin the workshop with an introduction to anatomy terms and concepts, then guide you through building the anatomy out of clay applied to a skeleton model. The shoulder can be complicated to understand, with the humerus, clavicle, and scapula coming together to form this joint. Bringing these bones together by shaping clay with your own hands allows you to see anatomic relationships in three-dimensions, and better understand the anatomy within your own body.  

The workshop includes a section of Pilates-based movements to help you identify and protect your own shoulders' connective tissue, for a lifetime of motion.
