Cactus Pose for shoulder strength and flexibility

≤30 min. Create strength in the upper body as you practice cactus pose in standing and sitting postures. Start with an accessible and easy cat/cow practice to get the spine moving before standing poses wherein cactus pose is practiced in the upper body while the legs stay strong in Virabhadrasana 1 and 2 variations. In such a short practice you'll go from standing postures to balancing, to seated hip and hamstring work to supine hip work in sucirandrasana. You may want to have props like a yoga strap, blocks, and a blanket to refine your alignment in some of the poses.
