- While seated on a yoga mat, extend both legs out in front of you. Wrap the recovery band around the bottom of your feet so that you are holding one end of the band in each hand with a neutral grip (palms facing in). Ensure that the recovery band is in good condition and securely anchored around your feet to avoid injury. You could also press your feet against a sturdy object to help keep the band in place. Extend your arms in front of you. Sit up tall and draw your shoulder blades down and back to push your chest out. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. While maintaining a slight bend in your elbows, pull the ends of the band outward and backward until your arms are in line with your shoulders. You should feel a small squeeze between your shoulder blades.
- Inhale. Gently draw the ends of the band forward and inward to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
