Shoulder rolls

Shoulder rolls are used in many types of exercise routines; but when done in Yoga, you move slowly and with awareness, coordinating with the breath.

1. Stand tall but relaxed with your feet at hip width.

2. Hang your arms at your sides with your palms turned back.

Look straight ahead.

3. As you inhale, roll your shoulders up and back as shown in Figure 15-9. As you exhale, drop your shoulders down.

4. Repeat Step 3 six to eight times, reversing the direction of the rolls.

Figure 15-9:

Move slowly in the shoulder rolls, coordinating breath and movement.
