Hari Om, and a warm greeting to everyone on our journey towards well-being. Today, we’ll explore the Shoulder Rotation Moment, a simple yet effective practice that can alleviate frozen shoulder stiffness, shoulder pain, and neck discomfort.
- Find a Comfortable Position: Sit comfortably on the floor, a chair, sofa, or bed.
- Raise and Rotate Hands: Slowly raise both hands towards your shoulders. Rotate your hands so palms face the sky, extending fingertips towards the ceiling.

- Circular Elbow Rotations: Bring your elbows together in front of your chest and slowly rotate them in a circular motion.
- Elbow Movement: Gradually move your elbows upward, backward, and down, aiming to connect your elbows in front during each circular motion.
- Repeat and Reverse: Repeat this circular motion three to four times, each rotation taking at least 20 seconds. Then, reverse the direction, bringing your elbows together in front, down, backward, and up, creating another circle.
- Close Your Eyes: Before and after performing the exercise, close your eyes and feel the internal changes.
- Slow and Intentional: Perform the movements slowly and intentionally, rather than rushing through them.
