    Besides working for the best guitar company in the world, I am also a certified yoga instructor.
    I've combined my two loves in this video, which aims to help guitars players (and other musicians) with the aches and pains associated with hours of practice time.

    Please check it out, comment, like, share and enjoy. Thank you - Shawn

    As an amateur bassist, I laughed but must take umbrage from your humor there...:)

    "You can sit on a bass guitar; anything that will support your weight." HAHAHAHAHA!

    Nicely done Shawn.
    I can do all of that stuff, and a few of them are part of my normal morning.
    I do use a golf club rather than a strap - it feels more manly.

    This was going great until I started circling my arms and knocked my beer glass onto the floor...

    Cheers guys. I feel a bit vulnerable putting myself out there like this, so I appreciate the support you guys have given me.

    PS- Next time, I'll make sure my beer stays in-frame

    Seriously, it was great that you did this and thank you for sharing it with us! I need to make some time to sit down and go all the way through it.

    I blame martial arts rather than guitar for most of my aches 'n' pains but even just the first bit of stretching my fingers and wrists felt good -- before I had my little tragedy.

    (Do beer and yoga really mix?)

    Yes.
    The best tap house in my town has a hops and yoga night once a month, though the tap is pulled after the stretchy bendy stuff.
