Neck & Upper Back Relief

30 min - Practice


Olivia leads a class to increase mobility and strength in the neck, upper back, and shoulders. This class is great to relieve symptoms of neural tension in these areas or if you just have a "kink" in your neck. We flow through various standing poses that strengthen your legs and hips, holding these shapes to explore nerve gliding and stretches for your neck and upper back. We move to the floor and explore Dhanurasana (Bow pose), seated twists, and Boat pose to find further support for our neck and upper back. You will feel relaxed and spacious.

Olivia -  I didn't not take this class because I have an injury in my neck or shoulders, yet I still found this really helpful for addressing the tightness I always seem to haven in that region. And I found tightness in my arms I didn't know I had! AND my legs and hips got a little workout too! Thank you!

Great practice! I love your attention to detail. I was able to pinpoint a few spots in my neck that apparently don’t get enough love - something I’ll tend to better from now on 😌🙏🏻❤️
It's so true Elizabeth M that so many of us have on-going nagging tension in our neck, shoulders, and upper back.  I'm so happy to hear this sequence helped lighten the load there!  I appreciate the feedback. Have a great day!
Oh isn't that one of the joys of yoga Jenny S ? Geeta Iyengar used to say that yoga is like a little micro-surgery now so that we can prevent the macro-surgery later on.  Good job Doc!
