This class is a deep release for the shoulders and upper back, making it perfect for a variety of people, including musicians, new parents, office workers and athletes. It targets all of the muscles connecting to the upper back and shoulders, providing relief from tightness, aches and pain... all in less than 40 minutes!


Just what I needed

I found this class this morning and since I want to try rock climbing in the next few weeks, I thought it would be good to preemptively address the tightness in my shoulders. This class is EXACTLY what I needed, and even better than I'd hoped. I will be making this a regular part of my practice. Thank you, David, for making several classes that focus on the shoulders, upper back, and neck. I have chronic tension in those areas, and your classes do more for me to get my body in alignment than any other class or exercise I've found.

Thank you!

Was wondering if this would do what I needed for upper back and shoulders, and I love David's teachings, but your endorsement was all I needed to hear! Thank you for your words.9

I have been suffering from wrist pain due to a compressed nerve in my upperback/neck area for almost a year. I have tried countless sessions of physiotherapy, massage therapy, immobilizing with a cast and more recently I have discovered that blood flow to the area through a series of stretches or back strengthening exercises is the best way to find relief. I am adding this video to the top of my list! Can't wait to do it every morning before work. Than-you for providing me with relief <3!

These stretches feel amazing! I'm a musician so I'm always looking for ways to release tension from my shoulders. I will definitely be coming back to this video.

Thank you!

Dear David, I have not done yoga the past week and I noticed how difficult it was for me to walk and sit up straight. Your class helped me to have a straight body posture again. I hope to do your class again soon, maybe even already tomorrow. It feels very good and I like how at the beginning it starts slow, almost like a meditation. Thank you for everything! You bring light into our lives!

Fantastic Class

I'm starting to be able to move in ways that I had never been able to before. I have so much more freedom and openness in my upper body now (at least I feel like i do. ;-) At the end, I felt like I was sitting much straighter. This is great for me since I have a three month old baby to care for and a desk job too. I felt super after this. I was so proud I could do this class from start to finish. My neck kind of hurt doing some of the belt stuff but maybe with more practice that will go away too. I must have some tenseness in that area.

Whoa, thank you so much. I

Whoa, thank you so much. I am a parent of one year old twins, just starting to have issues with my upper back and shoulders. I know I need to take better care of my body, and this was a perfect, gentle, yet effective series of poses to ease back into greater mobility and strength. I look forward to seeing how I feel tomorrow after having practiced, and hope to return to this video again and again.
