Practice 33 – Circumduction


This is a simple exercise to finish with, which brings all movements into your shoulders.

1. Start by doing the sea-saw

2. Continue taking your arms backward as far as you can.

3. When your arms lift and circle back as far as they can go, you can allow your scapula to draw inwards and  downwards  as your arms come down slightly sideways, and then begin to circle forwards 

4.  This should feel as if you are taking your arms through a wheel-like movement.  However, it is very important that you listen in to your body, and work with your exact range of movement, and slowly connecting the different movements.

5. Is this simple or does it feel difficult moving from the sea-saw into another movement behind you?
