Today we are going to do the Eagle Ascends Practice. Do this practice gently and slowly at first. You can do this practice standing up or sitting down.
If standing, bend your knees. Stomach in.
Extend both arms out to your sides, perpendicular to your body, with your palms down.
Rotate your arms so that the palms are facing up as each arm is being pulled back–as far as you can comfortably and still keeping them above your shoulders.
The entire arm is being twisted as far as you can comfortably as you pull them back.
Then, bring your arms to the neutral position, perpendicular to your body. You’ll notice as you gain more energy, that your arms may swing forward slightly on their own naturally.
Then you roll them back again and pull them back as far as you can comfortably.
Do this thirty times. Then relax.
Repeat another thirty times.
