Excerpt from Yoga for Cancer, Tari Prinster’s latest book. Buy your copy today!

Benefits:

  • Range of motion in shoulders and arms
  • Chest and upper back stretch/strengthening
  • Lymphatic drainage in arms

Instructions:

Inhale: Lift arms to cactus.

Exhale: Fold left arm over right, giving yourself a hug.

Inhale: Begin to lift your elbows higher. As if taking off a T-shirt, slide your fingers up your arms as you reach your arms toward the ceiling. Expand your chest.

Exhale: Lower palms to thighs.

Repeat sequence, this time folding right arm over left to give yourself a hug. Then repeat the entire sequence six times, alternating which arm is on top.

Modifications: The action of removing the imaginary T-shirt may be difficult if you are recovering from surgery. Modify by skipping this movement and returning to Cactus Arms instead.
