Yoga open shoulder, be careful to fall into two misunderstandings! Maybe 90% of Yoga people miss it

Add teacher wechat to watch the teacher’s circle of friends ~ do you always have a sore shoulder? When this problem occurs, you should pay attention to shoulder opening! Shoulder opening has always been a hot topic in yoga and an indispensable part of daily practice.

There are always small partners who complain that it is difficult to open their shoulders.

Why? There are many muscles around the shoulder joint.

Some muscle positions are not only complex, but also cross.

If the practice method is wrong, it is easy to cause adhesion, inflammation and other related problems between the muscles.

Before practice, we should first guard against two misunderstandings! 1.

Don’t use waist collapse to increase the range of shoulder opening.

Many postures that stretch shoulders and arms are prone to waist collapse.

For example, in cat stretching, in order to press the armpits as much as possible, many practitioners collapse their waist without knowing it, which increases the curvature of the lumbar spine.

Over time, the spine will be worn and aged due to long-term compression, and the gain is not worth the loss.


People who practice stretching should also pay attention to tightening shoulder joints at the same time.

They always want to do more stretching exercises.

But you should note that the shoulder joint is connected and fixed by some flat and long ligaments, and the range of motion is relatively large, so it is extremely unstable.

If the ligament is stretched for a long time, it will become loose.

If the ligament is loose, it can no longer be tightened and can only be operated.

So you can’t just stretch.

You should also pay attention to the practice of support at ordinary times.
