Carrying tension in your shoulders? (Who doesn't?) The latest episode of Sage Yoga Training can help.
This series of shoulder stretches—great for swimmers and anyone with a tight upper body—includes optional leg positions to get your whole body looser. We begin with a shoulder strap sequence, for which you’ll need a yoga strap or a substitute—try a dog leash, a belt, or a necktie. Next we bring the arms to eagle pose and cow-face pose stretches, then we finish with a yoga mudra series for the chest and neck.
You can watch the ten-minute episode online, or download it through iTunes and tack it on to your workout playlist.
