1. Lie flat on the floor with your legs out straight behind you, hip distance apart, and your arms straight overhead, forehead to the floor.
2. Bring your right arm, to start, under and across your chest, leaning into your right shoulder and onto your arm.
3. Bring the left arm straight up and overhead, fingers to the floor, bicep near the ear. The more you roll toward center onto the shoulder joint, the deeper the stretch you will feel.
4. Hold for one minute, then repeat on the opposite side.

THE REASON: Shoulder Stretch will open up tightness in the shoulders.
