I have always been a bit uncomfortable  playing on the top string of the fiddle.

So I looked around for some stretches on you tube and found these, some of the other youngsters crossedfingerswho participate on the forum might find them help full.

Don't make the mistake of assuming yoga is risk-free - my aunt did her knee serious damage doing a reverse warrior pose or something. If it's not painless, don't do it!
