Who felt a bit of pain when they tried out the Libellula? Most of you all did. And that's completely normal when we're trying out a new move.
In this tutorial,@angelina.polerina shares a rotator cuff strengthening exercise where we can strengthen our shoulder with stuff we can easily find at home.
What's in it for you:
• Strengthens rotator cuff
• Prevent injury and improve mobility
• Especially important in moves where you shoulder is stretched back, like the Ballerina. You don't want your shoulder to pop out of it's socket!
What you'll need:
• Yoga block or book
• Can or light dumbbell
• Sit comfortably on the floor
• Set up your chair beside you

Elbow should be same height as shoulder, use books/ block to adjust.
Elbow bent at 90° angle. Palm facing forward.
Keep wrist straight.
Lower your forearm as far as it will go without your shoulder rolling forward.
You will feel a gentle stretch at the back of your shoulder.
Return to Step 1, repeat for 10 reps, aim for 3 sets on each side.
