Instructions:

Begin in a neutral tabletop position with your hands and knees on your mat.

  1. Inhale to reach your right arm out and up to prepare, then exhale to reach your right arm under your left arm.

  2. Lower your rights shoulder and ear to the ground.

  3. Keep equal weight in your knees, feet straight out behind you.

  4. Hold for 5-10 breaths. Release back to table tp, then repeat on the other side.

Thread The Needle Pose stretches and opens the shoulders, chest, arms, upper back, and neck. It releases the tension that is commonly held in the upper back and between the shoulder blades. This pose also provides a mild twist to the spine, which further reduces tension.
