Todays class is a short 35 minute practice with a focus on neck care, awareness, and education. It is an example of how I blend yoga and Feldenkrais principles in my classes. If you enjoyed this class, and would like a longer version of the class, with visuals, I currently have a sample video class that works with these similar concepts, register to watch the class here.
There is not going to be a lot of deep neck stretching in this class. Over stretching the neck too aggressively is actually something we wanted to be kind of careful with. Our neck has a lot of potential for mobility. And sometimes we actually use the neck more than we need to because other parts of the body, particularly your thoracic spine, tend to be tight and this area of spine may not move as much as it could, thus borrowing the movement from the neck. So if you feel like your neck is working over time, this class is for you.
You will need one yoga blanket rolled into a cylinder for class.
And for an even deeper study of this topic you can check out my Freeing the Neck and Shoulders Series, and Unraveling Body Anxiety Series, both of which are Feldenkrais focused.
