The Prayer Position Stretch

Hello Everyone,

The Prayer Position Stretch

1). Start by holding your hands in a prayer position.

2). Raise your arms over your head keeping your hands together in a prayer position.

3). Turn your palms outward (the front of your hands are now placed together in this position).

4). Stretch your arms downward as you separate your hands bringing your elbows down and place your hands back into the prayer position.

5). Repeat (2 to 3) two to three times.

Note: Please make sure to perform this exercise within your pain-free range of motion.


I pray and hope this information has helped someone today.

Sounds like a nice easy stretch, thanks for posting! I just did 2 minutes of yoga yesterday (the half moon position) and I can hardly move today so got to take it down a notch or two I think tsk! x

Hi Everyone,

I am sorry about not responding sooner. The key to stretching is to take it slow. Any type of movement is good, just pace yourself. Only you know what you can handle.

Start slowly and do not give up.
