Gently stretch and strengthen with circular, fluid movements of your head, neck, arms, upper back and wrists. Hand gestures known as mudras will also be used.

Help decrease upper and mid back tension with this sequence of poses designed to increase mobility and fluidity.

Props Needed: Wall space.
