The stretch will loosen your posterior scalene muscles, as well as the levator scapulae.

  • Start with a neutral, retracted shoulder position, hands by your side.
  • Turn your head away and downwards to one of your side.
  • You should be looking towards your arm pit.

To increase the stretch, use your hand to gently pull your head a little further. You can also put the opposite hand behind your back or push the hand (and the shoulder) down by holding on to the side of the chair.
