Whether it be in a public Yoga class, or in my private Therapeutic Yoga practice, the neck is a much-requested area of the body to release.
This delightfully simple neck stretch is easy to do as part of your Yoga practice or anytime throughout the day. It can also be done at your desk if you need a little stretch break.
It’s important when you are practicing this pose that you do so gently. Stop right when you feel a little stretch and pause there. Often, I notice students are a bit pushy when it comes to this stretch. Less is more here – we don’t want to be sore the next day. This is especially important for those of you with a neck injury or chronic issue – be gentle with yourself.
Practicing this regularly instead of waiting until you are in pain is key.
In the video below, I’ll walk you through this step by step.
If you know someone with neck tension, please share this post with them.
