The Perfect Yoga Flow for the Neck & Shoulders

The perfect 20-minute yoga flow for neck & shoulders.png

This flow is like or better than a massage for the neck and shoulders. Especially the end!

It’s an all levels flow. Props needed: wall space, bolster, block and blanket. You might not need all of them, but the bolster and blanket might help you to be more comfortable in the end.

We start seated with rolling the neck while arms and hands stay in reverse namaste or clasping opposite elbows as a variation. Followed by some side bends with a focus on the neck, opening each side of the neck.

Then we move into a table top and a table top variation. Please let the head fall all the way back here, as far as you possibly can.

After that, we flow from plank to dog and into a warrior flow with a variation on wide-legged forward fold, with neck & shoulder work emphasized.

Then it’s time to relax with a supported fish pose of sorts. Watch where you put the block and use the other props to adjust yourself to more comfort. I make recommendations in the video, but it’s up to you to get comfortable. We spend about two minutes in that restorative, supported pose because it’s so healing for the neck and shoulders.

    OR if you are more advanced in your practice and are in need of some cleansing, try this short, free email course to detox all of you:

    Free Detox Program:

    Lose Excess in Body, Mind, and Heart - Free in 5 Days

    What you must know about this program:

     

    • This is a free 5-day email course in which you will receive a meal guide, yoga practice and short meditation to help you clear out unnecessary weight in every part of you - every day. The first day will be an email to show you what you need to buy from the store, to have in your kitchen. It is a holistic detox.

     

    • Yes, this includes losing weight (you could lose up to three pounds), but this is more about dropping what weighs us down and holds us back not only in the body, but also in the mind and heart.

     

    • So those who are nursing, pregnant, trying to become pregnant, having any kind of serious health condition, or are underweight, should not take part.

     

    • This will not be a fast, though the first couple of days might feel like one. There will be plenty of protein, healthy fats and carbs. This is the healthiest way to detox, to improve the digestive system, and to lose weight. This is eating to lose weight.

     

    • I encourage you to take part in not only the meal guidance and diet part, but also the daily yoga practice and short meditation practice made available to you. Mind is connected to body is connected to spirit is connected to mind.

     

    When you detox one part of you, you detox all parts of you. Lots of time and love was put into this free course because I am concerned that people are carrying too much excess weight in their bodies and baggage in their hearts and minds.

     

    Nothing but love, and I hope it helps.
