Poses for a Healthier Heart
Kneel on the floor (or sit on the edge of a chair) with shoulders relaxed and held back. Bend your left arm behind your back. Place the back of the left hand on your back and slide it up between your shoulder blades. Extend your right arm overhead and bend the elbow, reaching your right hand between your shoulders toward your left hand. Clasp fingers if possible; if not, use a rope or a towel to get your hands as close as possible. Hold, then switch sides.
As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
