Technique Tuesday; Opening Up The Collarbone And Front Of The Shoulder Stretch. Part I "Upper Body Alignment For Ballet".

We live in a techno world. Laptops, cell phones, and many other handheld devices provide a never ending opportunity for slouchy shoulders. Many occupations require long hours in front of an computer.

Opening up those collarbones and the fronts of the shoulders is harder than ever, but oh so important for everyday posture. That is why the upper body alignment for ballet training can be so beneficial for that everyday posture.

I have come up with a gentle stretch and exercise routine to help prepare the collarbone and front of the shoulders. While I designed this as a preparation for upper body alignment of the shoulder girdle for ballet training, it can be used by anyone. Ballet or not. A good counter movement for all that forward slouching.

I hope you find this useful!

Thanks for reading and watching.

Enjoy the dance that is life!
