Who is this for?

What happens in the video?

Step 1

Set up the room so you have enough space to stretch your arms out to the side and in front of you without hitting anything, and wear something that makes you feel comfortable and able to move freely. You might also want to put a glass of water nearby. .

Step 2

Follow along with Becca’s step-by-step instructions, mobilising all the joints individually, and have fun.
