If you're having issues with the player:

Do you have stiff shoulders and a tight neck from working all day, and only have a half hour available? If so, this class is perfect. This class stretches every major muscle group that crosses the shoulder joint, releasing tight areas and relieving tension and pain. And there's even time for a 2-minute relaxation at the end!

Equipment: Strap
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yoga at Work

I have a mild rotator cuff injury and this practice is very helpful for keeping my range of motion. Thank you!

it is an oldie and a goodie. I'm glad I found it again to keep my neck and shoulders flexible.

One of the best yoga classes I've ever had! I experienced incredible opening in the shoulders and upper back, which is a recurring problem for me.

At the end of my work week, I was experiencing a tightness in my neck and shoulders. After doing this class, I feel so much better and I'm turning my head freely. Thank you and I'll be using this video on a regular basis.

I love this class! The only thing i wonder about is if there's any modifications for the hands to prayer on the back-pose, my wrists hurts a lot at this pose (I've had surgery on them several times before)
Otherwise, great class!! I find myself coming back to this class time after time :-)
Thanks a lot!

Hi, if you are still looking for a modification to prayer hands up the back i would recommend placing your hands palms together finger tips to the heel of the other hand or even finger tips to opposite wrist with palms still together, draw your shoulders and elbows back. find same arm stretch with your hands like this. begin with your hands located at the lower back and inch your hands upward as your body finds space while maintaining ribs drawing in, uttianabunda, and feeling the stretch in the front shoulder, lengthening across the collar bones.

This was just what I was looking for. I'm going to do this one regularly until I get my neck and shoulders back to a healthier state. Thank you!
