Shoulder exercises are common amongst women and men. If I were to take a poll of 100 men and women asking them if they included their favorite shoulder exercises in their exercise program, I am sure 90% of them would say yes. How about you? Do you work your shoulders when you exercise?
Yoga is a way of using our minds and bodies to feel good (therapeutic effects). Try cow's face (ghomukhasana) arms for shoulder flexibility and care. Use yoga breathing (pranayama) for energy and filtered air. Practice swan-feather pose (pinca-hamsasana) for lumbago and mind/body awareness. These poses are anecdotel for me and may help you too.
