Releasing the muscles of the hands, arms and shoulders is so beneficial for everyone, without exception. In particular, this class is great if you want to help prevent or heal joint problems such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, improve performance at the office or in your chosen sport, improve posture or just feel better. As David says, the key is understanding alignment and moving in a way that encourages release and allows you to let go of stress.

Always something new - love it

I have done already some previous of these classes on shoulder, arm, finger stretches but always wondered how to stretch the tissue between thumb and forefinger. I am 56 years old, yet quite fit but unpleaseantly surprised especially in the last year that everything around my wrists, hands has become tighter, and I have added some stretches to my regular routine. Just for the thumb/forefinger I did not have a good idea. But here we go! I am so grateful for the ever new impulses you provide!

surprisingly great

I wasn't particularly excited about this class, but what a surprise! I had several surgeries on my left forearm in my 20s and there is still some atrophy and minor limits to my mobility. This class seemed to be exactly the physical therapy I should have had years ago. Thanks!

One of my all time favorites!

This is a wonderfully calm stretching practice in areas that can get neglected, but support us in so much of our practice. Enjoy it!

Headache disappeared

Lovely class, my back of the head and neck headache went about halfway through the class. Feeling so much looser and softer around my shoulder girdle now.

Wonderful class!

Neck and Shoulders Stretch

This feels good on my arms and shoulders and relieves the arm pain I have from a pinched nerve on my neck. Lovely class. Thank you.

Your hand and arm stretches

Your hand and arm stretches are among my favorites, along with hip openers and hamstring stretches, as I think they are often neglected and sooo useful for countering workaday wear and tear. I do think reverse namaste is quite a challenge for those who don't know the trick to getting into the pose...I think there's a video here that explains it nicely, isn't there?

Gracias David this is just

Gracias David this is just what I needed and those "Core Power" are not doing in class.

Very easy but hugely

Very easy but hugely benefiting class.
I was able to move well past my usual eagle arms, which is a telling sign for me that the shoulders are loose after the initial prep.

Thank you David.
