Do This Pose Lying Down, and Your Shoulders Will Love You

reclining eagle

Who doesn't love an exercise we can do lying down? Reclining Eagle Pose allows us to deeply stretch the shoulders and hips while working core.

If you spend a lot of time fatiguing your upper body at a desk or driving, you'll appreciate how Eagle Pose soothes and stretches the shoulder and upper back muscles, especially near the shoulder blades. When done in a supine position, we don't have to fight gravity to maintain good form, and we can relax more into this beneficial pose. For added core benefit, draw the knees closer to the elbows.
