15 Minute Bedtime Yoga Stretch for Chest & Back is a routine of very deep yoga stretches for your upper body from Sara Beth. It says chest and back in the title but your shoulders get some intense stretching, too. I actually found some of the stretches uncomfortable but that is probably because I have a long history of chronic shoulder problems. As I was doing this practice, it felt like my upper body has tightened up; which tells me that I really need to spend more time doing focused yoga practices like this that give my upper body some deep stretching and mobility.
15 Minute Bedtime Yoga Stretch for Chest & Back is 15:09 minutes; the practice is actually 13:45 minutes. The last minute is Sara talking about another one of her yoga practices. Equipment: fitness mat. You will hold each pose for several breaths.
