Sitting or standing tall, slowly tuck your chin as you glide your
head backward over your body (dorsal glide).
Raise both arms so that your hands are next to your ears.
Take a deep breath, and as you breathe out, lower your elbows down
and behind your back. You will feel your shoulder blades slide down and
together, and at the same time you will feel a stretch across your chest and
the front of your shoulders.
Hold for about 6 seconds, then relax for up to 10 seconds.
Repeat 8 to 12 times.
