My shoulders get very tense and cause neck pain and migraines. It's been a couple weeks for me of knotted and tight shoulders. This practice helped me relieve so much tightness and released blood flow. I look forward to revisiting it tomorrow. Thank-you.

Wonderful video for shoulders, I have been experiencing pain in my shoulder the past several weeks to the point that I couldn't sleep without ibuprofen. I have done this video four days in a row and am pain free all day and worked up to my first night pain free last night. Thank you!

What a beautiful accent to listen to! And definitely helped my tight shoulders and posture. Would of loved longer holds especially with the eagle arms but I just repeated that at the end of the video :)

I have had a pain and tightness in my left shoulder/arm for weeks and could not shake it. The twisting stretch in this workout INSTANTLY opened up my problem spot and took the pain away. I am amazed and grateful!!! Wonderful practice. Thank you so much!

Surprised at how poor my alignment is so I'm working on this video slowly. Upper arm strength is and issue. So far I only get halfway though comfortably. I have learned to have some balance while pushing my self. so I'll work on something else today too. May be I'll be able to do more next time :)

This was perfect. I did a lot of baby wearing today and my shoulders were feeling it! This practice was so needed. Thank you!
