Free Your Shoulders

3 Fridays, July 12, 19, 26: 10:30-11:45am

w/ Carol Grimes

LOCATION: NE Portland Studio, Portland OR 97211 (near Concordia University & Alberta Park)

Release and relax shoulder tension, improve strength and stability, and help your shoulders to move with more freedom and ease in this 3-week semi-private group intensive.

The shoulders are the most mobile joint in the body, yet for many of us they feel chronically "stuck" and/or "weak" due to stress, injury, or habits formed in our modern lifestyle. This summertime series is a helpful way to immerse yourself and learn more about the complex and often vulnerable shoulder joint. If you’ve ever had a shoulder injury, if you hold a lot of tension in the area of the shoulders, or if you are simply wanting to deepen your understanding of the shoulders, this workshop is for you!

There are no hands-on adjustments in this class, with the understanding that we are each personally exploring our way toward healing in a gentle and kind manner. 

Workshop cost: $105 / Space is limited to a semi-private group size, please register beforehand to save your space. Payment may be made through Venmo in advance or you may pay by cash or check at the door. Studio address will be emailed upon registration.


  1. Can I miss a class? -- yes, each week builds on the next but it's totally okay to miss one. If you still want to sign up but need to miss two, I'd recommend taking the series again at a future time. Keep in mind that you can request private lessons if you need to better accommodate your schedule:

  2. Can I do a drop-in instead of signing up for the entire series? -- unfortunately, class enrollment is small, so you must sign up for the entire series.

  3. Can I take this class with a shoulder injury? -- yes, many people who sign up for this series have injuries or problems with their shoulders. If the injury is fresh and you are in a lot of pain, you may decide to take the series when your shoulder has healed a little bit more so that you don't risk re-injury.
