Today’s tutorial is designed to OVER stretch the shoulders.
Since we moved to the suburbs, I had to switch from Shala practice to home practice, and sometimes, I miss my teacher’s extra push.
Here, a little hack I use to improve my hollowback with the help of ankle weights, which in this case can be called wrists weights.
