Hatha Yoga for the Hands, Arms and Shoulders

Beginner I

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.

Excellent class to gently stretch out neck and shoulder muscles to help them stay strong through the day. Thank you David.

I enjoyed this. I've been working on my upper body strength and didnt realize how non flexible my upper body was. I will be doing this a couple times a week.

This practice has helped me several times this week alleviate some of the pain associated with a migraine. I work at a desk all day long and believe it is contributing. These heart opening poses are fabulous! Thank you!

What a great practice for those of us who work at the desk a lot!
Love all the variations of stretches for shoulders, arms, wrists, and fingers.
Thanks David, for guiding us through, in a safe and fun way. Grounded on the rocks, in warm evening light.

Felt a big difference in my shoulders, as been suffering with some clicking and discomfort. I will be practicing this again I'm sure. Thanks

This is perfect for anyone tied to a desk for a long period of time. It provides stretches to areas of an office worker's body which get adjusted to bad habits i.e. slouching, bad keyboard habits, etc. This is a short, intense class that is well worth the 20 minutes.

Dear DoYogaWithMe,
I have been using your site for years and have seen & felt great benefits like increased mobility in my neck and even new muscles in back, shoulders & upper arms. I had a full spinal fusion and rod implant forty years ago so flexibility and strength are vital to living independently with less pain. I am your grateful and loyal friend. Thanks so much for the fantastic classes and for this beautiful site. I'd be lost without you!
Warmly,
Om Shanti

I have overuse injury in my elbow and shoulder. This is so wonderful for unworking the tension!
