✨PRAYER POSE ✨ Anjali Mudra (Salutation Seal) 🕉 Prayer Pose behind the back stretches the shoulders, and strengthens your back and posture muscles. 💪🏽 BUT it is very challenging! 🙀 I do not recommend forcing yourself into the pose, as you may risk straining your shoulder. Instead, use the modification I've show in the bottom left photo, with the fists 👊🏼 pressing each other. 🕺🏼 If this is still too much, then hold onto a strap and work on rolling the shoulders open, and sitting up tall.
•You will feel your back posture muscles working, like your upper and mid spine, your lats, and spinal muscles.
•Fronts of shoulders are stretching, and tops of shoulders are rolling down your back, engaging down into your lats, and opening up your chest.
•Your palms are pressing together, to help support your back.
•Belly is engaged and pulled into spine.
•Tightness or lack of engagement in the back muscles is prohibiting this pose.
•Shoulders are round
•Hands are not pressing together
•Back muscles are not engaged
•Belly is slack
