Practice a few shoulder rolls (forward and backward) to warm up. If you are unable to practice reverse prayer pose, try holding each of your elbows behind you instead. Please don't force yourself into this pose …. listen to your body …. does it feel like a healthy stretch or is it an unhealthy pain? You are your best teacher. Try to relax into the pose. Hold for 5-10 breaths, gradually increasing your breaths.
Benefits: The shoulder movements open up the chest and help you to breathe better. Helps strengthen your wrists and alleviate wrist pain. This pose also helps if you have shoulder and neck pain and/or suffer from stress and anxiety. Enjoy stretching …..
