Shoulder Releasers

woman with shoulder tensionBreastfeeding your baby gives you both so much, and yet it can also leave you with neck and shoulder tension. Here are two poses that help relieve upper body tension.


1. Stand erect. Reach your right arm up and over your head to cover your left ear. Pull your head gently toward your right shoulder as you keep your left shoulder even. Hold your head for a count of 10. Release and let your head float up on its own. Repeat on the left side.


2. Clasp your hands behind the middle of the back of your head with your elbows flared. Bow your head toward your chest. Relax 30 seconds in this postion. Raise your head slowly as you sit up. Take three deep breaths.
