This practice felt really good in my shoulders. I'm chronically tight in my shoulders but yoga helps. It would be helpful for students to prepare their straps with a loop at outer shoulder width to avoid having to fumble with the strap during class.

Am I the only one whose arms don’t go backwards over my head like that?. The part where you reach all the way up in front of you, grasping strap, then lower arms backwards to lower back, then return up and forward.
Impossible for me and in fact didn’t realize anyone’s shoulders moved that way!

Wow! What a workout for my weak shoulders! I injuried my shoulder 2 yrs ago and have struggled to gain strength since. This class definitely helped with getting back into proper alignment. Do you have any classes similar to this?
