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.
