Yoga for every body - men - shoulder flexibility


Please see 'Yoga for every body-why men need yoga'- http://flexiladies.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/yoga-for-every-body-why-men-need-yoga.html for an introduction to yoga for men.

In this blog post we will look at shoulder flexibility.  Men have larger muscle fibres and lean tissue in their upper bodies so that they tend to be stronger in their upper bodies but less flexible.   If shoulder muscles are tight, this may affect upper body posture which in turn impedes breathing and creates stress in the body and mind.  Tight muscles also impede the flow of blood and prana to the joint which over the long term may affect the health of the joint.  The video below is of some yoga poses that will help improve shoulder flexibility.
