Shoulder Roll Veiny Arms

Hi, my arms and hands become veiny when I do the shoulder roll. I rest my shoulders and and put my hands on my lap, out pop the veins. When I lift my shoulder blades up a little, my veins go back down. I cannot comfortably hold this position for long. Have any teachers encountered this before? Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this?

Hi,

No, I haven't encountered this with myself or any of my students. Have you had any issues or injuries related to your shoulders? 

I suggest you try the smallest shoulder roll movement that you can, and see if it still causes this problem. If not, stay with the very small movement for a while, then gradually and gently increase the shoulder roll movement very slightly over time, listening to your body. Don't do something that is uncomfortable or hurts you.
