Yoga for Shoulders, Chest and Back

Flexibility, strength, and balance–these are the pillars for healthy aging. At 55 I attempt to incorporate these three pillars daily and target each specifically several times per week.

In this yoga sequence, poses are held between 2-3 minutes. In between poses, there are brief reset movements to floss joints and settle attention. We aim to maintain a 4-count inhale through the nose and an 8-count exhale through the mouth. We relax into the pose as we were wet noodles. There are lots of variations for each pose and many props that can make them accessible and pain free. These are not shown in the pictures. This is a sample gravity yoga session that we offer every Monday from 7-8 PM.
