yoga flow for chest opening

Feel like you’ve been hunched forward all day?  Are your shoulders scrunched up, neck tense, and you just feel slouchy in general?  Here is a short yoga flow that can help stretch and release those tight front muscles of the chest/shoulders/neck, which can help improve your posture and possibly any tension and pain.  This is a great one to try at the office after you’ve been working for a long time at a computer, or if there isn’t enough space, do it as soon as you get home from work!  Make sure you squeeze the shoulder blades together and down (away from the ears) and work the back side of your body (between the shoulder blades, muscles of the back) to improve strength to encourage good postural alignment. Repeat it twice to get a little deeper in to the poses. Remember to move with your breath always.
