The image shows Sabyoga founder Sabina Stehr holding the left upper arm above the right upper arm. The yoga teacher's tip is to bring the two hand palms as close together as possible. The head should be relaxed; breath into the stretching and let loose. Then reverse the exercise: the right upper arm above the left.. The routine ends with both arms loosely hanging, breath in while lifting up shoulders, and while breathing out, bring down the shoulders.
