Yoga 15: Open Up The Chest And Shoulders

A 15-minute yoga routine designed to stretch the tight muscles in the front of your body, build strength in the weak muscles in the back of your body and increase mobility in the thoracic spine and shoulders.

 Is this available on your Yoga15 Vimeo pages to buy and download? I had a look but could not see it, sorry if I missed it. I'd quite like to take this with me on my phone as part of the ones I do regularly. Thanks!

 It's actually one of my favourite routines too. Gentle but super effective for loosening you up. If you follow this link, it is video 80:

 @yoga15app: I'm tackling a (self-diagnosed) rotator cuff problem, not sure what caused it, but I first noticed it when cycling. Not serious but it twinges, especially on a long downhill or when sleeping on that shoulder.This video appeared at exactly the right time for me to start working on this shoulder when I worked out the problem. I have now done it a few times, but what seems to have really helped is the specific pose of doing the long-hold butterfly mentioned in your associated article. I can feel that really hit the problem area and generally it is now getting much better.

 @sifriday: Reclining Butterfly is kind of a godsend. I'm glad to hear it is working for you. It's a super gentle way to open up your chest (which may be tight from rounding your shoulders forward) - allowing gravity to do the work for you. Great for tight hips too.
