This yoga-inspired exercise stretches the middle and back of the shoulder on one arm while stretching the chest and front of the shoulder on the other arm. It also rotates the spine to stretch the muscles of the trunk.
If performed as a static stretch, hold for three to five breaths (one breath equals inhaling and exhaling). If performed as a dynamic exercise, do five repetitions per side (exhale as you twist; inhale as you return to starting position).
