This video is part of our "Yoga Recess for Parents" series, specifically designed to be a quick break for parents during distance learning. This practice focuses on the shoulders. In most cases, tight shoulders are the result of tight trapezius muscles. The trapezius runs from the back of the head to the lower thoracic spine and also attaches to the shoulder blade. What usually happens when you spend too much time sitting is that the muscles in the front body shorten and those in the back body become weak. Yoga can help you to lengthen the front body and tone the back body so that you can find a more upright posture. This 15-minute sequence will stretch out your shoulders, strengthen your back body and release your hips. Props: 2 Blocks
