This shoulder opener is amazing and one of the best parts is you can do it in your car on the way to an audition or while sitting in the green room waiting to go on. It’s also the perfect post-travel stretch.
To begin, interlace your fingers, straighten your arms, and reach them overhead. Then, bending through your elbows, bring your arms to the right side which will form a bit of a rectangle through the arms. Then take your hands behind your head and move over towards the left side. Straighten the arms up towards the ceiling and continue in a circular motion several times. Then reverse directions for the same number of times.
If this variation is too intense, make a softer circle around your head… more like a halo. Keep the elbows bent rather than extending your arms and make small circles around your head.
Enjoy the burn!
