To protect our shoulders, we can build some basic movements into our lives to mai...

  • Rotator Cuff Yoga for Strength & Mobility

    Rotator cuff injuries happen more often than we would like to admit - often from acute injury (lifting overhead of swinging a heavy object overhead), repetitive use, or the simple fact that as we age sometimes our bones grow little "spurs" that can make the shoulders painful. So, let's keep this...
