This exercise / stretch helps open your shoulders chest, neck, and back and is thought to stimulate digestion.

1. Begin on all fours.

2. Reach your left arm underneath your body, to the right.

3. Release your left shoulder and left temple to the ground. Your hips will sink back a bit toward your heels.

4. Allow your right hand to stay where it is, now gently reach the left arm into the air and follow with your head and eyes hold for 3 seconds and repeat on the other side.

Work towards 3 sets of 10 on each side.

I hope you have enjoyed practicing this stretch and the others that are available in our how to exercise blog. If you’d like to practice these sorts of exercises with our expert guidance, why not book yourself in to one of our Trigger Point Pilate’s classes, which happen three times a week in Brighton and Hove
