Heart Health

Flapping Wings Exercise

This exercise helps to relax tension and contraction

in the chest, difficulties in breathing, cardiac problems, and reduction

of high blood pressure.

1. Stand, bringing your arms up until they are parallel to the ground,

with your palms facing forward.

2. Stretch your arms back without bending your elbows so you can

feel a pressure in the shoulder blades. Keep bending your hands

backwards until you feel the pressure in your wrists. As you do

this, inhale and raise your chest up and out.

3. Now, as you exhale, keep your arms straight, bringing your palms

together in front of you and curving the spine forward.

4. Repeat this exercise three to five times, but do not go past

your level of comfort.
