Fertility Yoga: How To Do a Shoulder Opening Mountain Pose

Shoulder Opening Mountain Pose

Bryan McCay

  1. Come into mountain pose, with feet hip distance apart.
  2. Curl your tailbone under and lengthen your lower back and torso.
  3. Raise your arms to the ceiling, shoulder distance apart, keeping them straight with palms facing each other. Make sure that your elbows are straight, with your inner elbows turned toward your head. Keep your arms straight up, even if it becomes challenging, for 2 to 5 full minutes, inhaling and exhaling deeply.
  4. Bring your arms down by your sides and shrug your shoulders up and down quickly at least 60 times.
