Neck and Shoulder Yoga

Stiff neck?

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of requests for neck and shoulder yoga. And I’m super pleased to oblige because neck and shoulder tension is something I have dealt with quite a bit.

So what actually CAUSES stiffness in the neck and shoulders? There are lots of possible reasons for the discomfort, including (but not limited to):

  • Slouching and poor posture
  • Stress & anxiety
  • Overuse
  • Incorrect sleep habits
  • Sitting at a desk all day, staring down at your computer or phone​

The awesome news is that yoga can help with all of the above.

Today’s yoga video below is focused primarily on stretching the neck and shoulders, but I also have videos on destressing, improving posture, and better sleep, all of which could be helpful if neck & shoulder tension is something you struggle with. (Explore all of the past videos here and make sure to subscribe.)

I hope you love it!
