  • Mountain Pose Variation Feet Hip Wide (Tadasana Variation Feet Hip Wide)
    A. Start with coming to the centre of the mat keeping the feet a few inches apart in distance.

    B. Relaxing the shoulders and the neck, keep the body completely loose and relaxed.

    C. Standing here in Tadasana, you could close your eyes or remain with eyes open and for better opening of the body and the mind, practice one nostril breathing.

    D. Closing the left nostril with the right hand ring finger, breath and inhale through the right nostril and then slowly exhale out through the right nostril for about 12 times. The idea of breathing through the right nostril, which is the Pingala (SUN), helps to warm up the body, which is essential to help open the muscles faster.

    E. After breathing through the right nostril for around 12 rounds of inhalation and exhalation, relax and stand with your arms besides you.

    A. Raise the left arm up to the shoulder level and take it towards the right side of the body extending it to your comfort.

    B. While raising the right arm inhale and support it inside the left arm while bending the left arm.

    C. The left arm should help push the right arm towards the left shoulder and try to keep this position for about 2 breaths.

    D. Make sure the breathing is slow and smooth, even if it is audible. The idea of this stretch is to open the tightness around the upper arm close to the shoulder.

    B. Now raise the arms up and down rotating the shoulders from front to back in three rounds while taking 6 breaths here.

  • Standing Side Bend Pose Variation
    A. While standing in Tadasana, inhale and raise your left arm above your shoulder and taking it over your head bend the torso towards the right while stretching the left arm towards the right.

    B. Exhale completely and remain here in Standing Side Bend Pose Variation for about 2 breaths feeling the stretch at the lower sides of the back and the shoulders.

    B. Placing the right hand over the left shoulder from the front, and placing the left arm around the right side of the hips from behind, inhale and slowly raise the torso and twist taking the body towards the left side while trying to look down behind you.

    C. The twisting of the torso and the neck along with the shoulders, releases any kind of stress or stiffness around the shoulder and the neck region.
