Child’s Pose – Wall

  • HOW: Place your hands against the wall at about shoulder height. Hinge at your hips and bring your body forward, this will be a body on arm movement which will increase the amount of shoulder elevation you are working into. Bring your chest as close to the floor as you feel comfortable. Be gentle and move within your comfort. Change the width of your arms for comfort.
Ā 
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch in the shoulders or the mid-back region.
 
  • COMPENSATIONS: Make sure you arenā€™t leading into the wall much, this should be more of a stretch than a strengthening exercise. Keep your feet under your hips to ensure this.
