Two-for-One Upper Back and Hip Stretch
Sitting Eagle with Forward Bend
This is a quick and efficient tension buster... a massage you can give yourself!
Do This Pose: Place your right ankle on your left knee, then cross your right arm over your left arm at the elbows. Raise your forearms upward and place the fingers of the left hand to the palm of your right hand (your thumbs will be pointing toward your face). If you can't join your hands, hold a belt. Lift your arms upward and breathe into your upper back. Now bend forward from your hips. Breathe deeply and feel tension releasing from your hips and shoulders with every exhalation.
