Chest Opener

Starting from your belly take your arms out wide at shoulder height. Bend your right arm and bring your hand beneath your shoulder. Gently start to press into your hand so that your chest lifts and you start to feel a stretch through the front of the left shoulder.

 

From here you can bend your knees or keep your legs straight, really just finding a comfortable place for your legs as you open through the shoulder.

 

To exit the pose slowly start to bring yourself back down and rest on your belly before repeating on the second side.

Physical Benefits:

  • Stretches the front of the shoulder & chest
