YOGA POSES TO INCREASE SHOULDER STRENGTH Shoulders are a tricky part of the body. They are naturally mobile joint, with many connecting muscles and ligaments that are prone to injury. Pain in the shoulder can be associated with strains, tears and strength imbalances. Fortunately, a few key yoga poses can help build strength and relieve tension in the shoulder muscles, which can add to overall stability and help prevent injury. If the shoulder is already injured, consult your physician before attempting any yoga postures. 1. PLANK Plank Pose — Kumbhakasana— is an arm balancing yoga pose that tones the abdominal muscles while strengthening the arms and spine. Plank is an essential component of Sun Salutations and is often used as a transitional pose, in which the breath is not held. It can also be practiced on its own to build strength and stamina. Plank Pose tones all of the core muscles of the body, including the abdomen, chest, and low back. It strengthens the arms, wrists, and shoulders, and is often used to prepare the body for more challenging arm balances. Plank also strengthens the muscles surrounding the spine, which improves posture. Not only is plank a core strengthening powerhouse, but it also works the shoulders and provides an opportunity to stabilize the shoulder girdle. 2. DOLPHIN The dolphin pose also sometimes referred to as the puppy pose in yoga, is a standing, mild inversion posture. This asana helps in working the various muscles in the shoulders, abdomen and the upper back. This posture in an inverted ‘v’ position with the forearms and toes on the floor on the floor with the rest of the body curved upwards in a v-like formation. By regularly performing the dolphin pose benefit to body parts like the upper back, shoulders, arms, abdomen, hamstrings and legs is tremendous. 3.CHILD’S POSE Child’s Pose is a true resting pose, and one that you can hold for long periods of time without the need for props. Child's Pose helps to stretch the hips, thighs, and ankles while reducing stress and fatigue. It gently relaxes the muscles on the front of the body while softly and passively stretching the muscles of the back torso. This resting pose centers, calms, and soothes the brain, making it a therapeutic posture for relieving stress. When performed with the head and torso supported, it can also help relieve back and neck pain and also strengthen the neck and the shoulder muscles. 4. RABBIT POSE From your hands and knees, with knees hips distance apart, place the crown of your head on the mat. Reach your hands behind you to grab ahold of the tops of your feet. Simultaneously pull on your feet while pressing your shoulder blades forward. This will create a wonderful opening in the shoulder blades.
