Wow, I didn't even know I needed this. I had about 10 minutes to do something after Melissa Krieger's quick morning stretch and chose this because it was short. I am not an athlete so almost didn't continue when I started the video but I am glad I continued. I had to stop and rest a few times but can't believe how warm and relaxed my shoulders feel!!! Thanks for such a novel, quick and effective tutuorial! I would think anyone could benefit from this.

Great little workout for tired arms from being on the computer all day!

I just did this workout for the first time as a break from grading essays. It was very hard but definitely worth it! Thank you for a short but wonderful routine that I will attempt to make a daily practice.

Thank you! That was awesome.
I have over-used and stressed my arms and shoulders through work and bad posture. This practice is great at aligning my spine and really healing the tissue especially in my shoulders! What a release!

Thanks Michelle. Different stretches that I was used to. Definitely harder than it looks. Nancy

Simple moves, but a lot harder than it looks!

So whatever yoga I had been doing earlier in my life, this video has made me realise I was probably doing it wrong. Absolutely love how deep these stretches can go, my back and upper body are definitely loving it though!

I didn't realize how tight I was and I couldn't make it though the whole 15 mins without stopping and shaking myself out of tension
