Clear Some Stress from your shoulders...get the monkey off your back!
Dolphin pose is not just a headstand preparation, it is a great way to open your upper back and relieve stress. Many of us carry our stress in our upper back - sometimes even developing a hunchback from the stress of sitting all day at a desk.
Try a dolphin pose to help relieve tension. The inversion calms your brain while the physical posture strengthens your back, stretches your hamstrings and stretches your shoulders.
