  2. Hi All, I intended to mention this at the recent workshop in Vancouver. I have found with a few individuals, when applying the partner chest opener stretch some report a strong sensation of hyper extension in the elbow joint. Experimenting with grip position, reducing the line of pull and easing up the stretch helps reducing the elbow discomfort but does not always yield the optimal stretch through the chest. I have noted these individuals are typically women and present tightness though the arm and/or some hyper-mobility. Any thoughts on how to remedy the elbow strain? Or beginning with other stretches and building up to? Blair
