Shoulder & Upper Back Care

  • Neck, Shoulder & Upper Back Care – Please see this section for yoga tools including shoulder strengtheners, chest openers, alignment tips and more.
  • Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) is one of your options for strengthening upper back and opening shoulders. To avoid weight on wrists, however, see Prone Backbend Variations or consider Marla Apt’s suggestion here for a wall version: Stand six inches from wall, fingertips at wall; lift heels, press pubic bone into wall. Then practice actions of Cobra Pose.
