Yin Yoga How-To: Starfish Pose

Starfish pose is a deep shoulder stretch. The shoulders are one of the top places people hold stress and tension. By focusing on high stress areas we can release physical and mental tightness. This pose is one of my personal favorites.
The infographic explains how to do this pose on one side, but you can easily apply these steps to both sides of the body. Have a timer handy next to you- set it for 3-6 minutes. Once the timer is up switch to the other side and reset the timer.
