How To Engage The Shoulder Blades
Sometimes it seems like we carry the weight of the world in our neck and shoulders. We learn to open the shoulders in yoga practice – very helpful, especially when we spend our days hunched over a desk in front of a computer.
One month, the focus was on the shoulder blades. We’re learning this (and more) as one way to open the chest. Better breathing, more energy, and an open heart result.
Keep the whole of the shoulder blades connected to the back (inner face facing the ribcage). Next take the outer bottom blades towards each other and the top of the shoulder blades broad. This helps to lift and open the chest.
