Course Overview

Therapeutics – The Upper Limb
An exploration of the dysfunction, pain & pathologies of the shoulder joint complex, the elbow, the wrist and the hand, their causes, assessment and applied therapies.

Research on myofascial therapy is changing, expanding and improving at a rapid pace! This workshop includes the latest therapeutic understanding and advances for the upper limb!

Half theory to help you recognise and understand common conditions in the yoga community and half practical applications for optimal self healing of these. Every lesson includes pre-habilitation exercises that involve integration into the entire kinematic chain which is necessary for good upper limb biomechanics and to avoid future problems! 

The pathologies covered are Rotator Cuff Related Shoulder Pain, Frozen Shoulder, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, hypermobile dislocations, Cervical Radiculopathies, Elbow Tendiopathies and other elbow related problems and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other wrist problems. 

We cover all types of exercise therapy from myofascial release, somatic movement, functional mobilisations, strength and resistance work, stretching and adaptations of and applications to yoga postures.

We also discuss and learn two mantras to address the enormous psychosocial involvement in shoulder problems. 

The objective is to equip you with a clear understanding of upper limb health and pathologies with the latest best advice and movement therapy you can use and/or share with your students for ultimate health and healing. 🙌🏼

A digital copy of the PowerPoint slides will be provided.

NOTE: This Workshop can be done as a stand-alone event and is also one of the therapy focused topics of our 300-hour Online Teacher Training.


Dear Monica

After completing the 2nd day of your upper-limb workshop I’m literally sitting on my chair and crying. Although I booked the workshop to improve my teaching skills, it seems, that this workshop was more for me than for others. After almost 2 years of research, I think I found the source of all my problems. You named all the things that went wrong by me. Although I was looking for help, nobody could tell me where my symptoms come from. You went really to the bottom of everything! It’s a piece of fantastic knowledge combined with your loving experience. It would be just great for other people to know more about this topic.

So, thank you very, very much Monica. I wanted to share it with you and express my appreciation for every word and exercise.
With love & light,

The  workshop was absolutely fantastic, the cherry on the YTT-cake. I am really grateful to you. Even by only following the short sequence of therapeutic movements during the workshop I felt a relief. That motivates me to give it a new try to improve my bad posture. When you said during the course “Your body thinks in feelings. Feel your body and you’ll know what it’s thinking”, it deeply touched me.

It was great! For me it was very helpful as I have an ongoing chronic shoulder/neck problem. Now I have a much better understanding of the mechanics. Also, your approach to listen to the feelings of the body really helped.
So, thank you very much – it was a great mixture of theory, practice and wisdom and very helpful!
