The Best Yoga Moves to Improve Shoulder Flexibility

Tight shoulders lead to tight backs and necks, and make you look like you’re carrying the weight of the world around, which—in case you’re in any doubt—isn’t attractive.

These three shoulder stretches deliver a lot of bang for buck, especially when done together. We won’t sugar coat this, if you’ve been ignoring flexibility in your shoulders these stretches will hurt. They’re the feel-good-after-you-stop kind of stretches. But, hey, if it didn’t hurt, everyone would stretch all the time and you wouldn’t need to read this. The trick is to hold these stretches for as long as you can, without forcing them, and do them regularly. If you stretch it, flexibility will come.
