Stretch your hips and shoulders with this strengthening posture pose that will loosen up all the tight areas in your upper body. It’s natural to store a lot of tension in these areas, and by holding this pose for 10-15 breaths, you’ll be sure to create space in those areas and loosen your body right where you need it most.
