Here's a stretch to open the upper body, chest, and arms. Breathe into it and hold it for three to four minutes, trying to get a little deeper as the minutes go on.
- Sit on the floor with both knees bent and your heels planted, or extend your legs straight out in front of you.
- Place your palms behind your hips with your fingers pointing away from your body.
- Walk your hands behind you as far as you can, with the pinkies as close as possible.
- Breathe here for three to four minutes, walking the hands away from you as your chest and shoulders begin to open up.
