Shoulders+Arms+Wrists

These home practices emphasize strength, stretch or mobility in your shoulders, arms, wrists and hands. While these home practices also include movements and postures that touch other areas of your body, they accentuate our ability for greater functional range of motion in our upper joints. These practices challenge both our strength and our muscle flexibility to be able to both hold and move safely in and out of postures that involve your upper extremities.
