Shoulders and Chest: Seated Heart Opener
- Begin sitting on the heels as if coming into Reclining Hero pose.
- Lean back and place your palms flat on the floor about eight to 10 inches behind you so your fingertips are pointing away.
- Press your hands firmly into the ground to lift the chest high, arching your back and pushing your hips into your heels. To increase the stretch, lower your head behind you, stretching through your throat and the front of your chest even more.
- Hold for 30 seconds.
- To take this stretch deeper and target one shoulder at a time, lift one arm into the air for 30 seconds and then repeat on the other side.
