Yoga for Stiff Neck & Shoulders! (Full write-up on sassy-yogi.com!)
It has been ages since I have posted a yoga guide, and today’s guide is something that I have been doing almost every day since I started a desk job! As we spend long hours at our desk and computer, we tend to place a lot of tension in our neck, shoulder, and lower back.
Some of the poses that you can do to relieve the tension in your back and shoulders include: cow face pose, seated spinal twist, puppy stretch, thread the needle pose, seated side stretch, passive standing forward fold, downward facing dog, bridge pose, reclining spinal twist, and ending it off with a good ol’ shoulder stretch!
Full write-up of the different poses can be found in my brand new post on sassy-yogi.com, so be sure to check it out and comment if you have any other poses that you always do to relieve that ache in your neck!
Some things to note:
- Remember to breathe - inhalation to straighten your spine, exhalation to relax and deepen your stretch
- This is a relaxation sequence so please remember not to push yourself too hard! That can lead too additional stress in your shoulders and back instead.
- Feel free to stay in these poses for as long as you like, generally around 5 to 10 long and deep breaths per pose would be a good gauge <:
Have fun with this sequence, and let me know how it works for you! Namaste <3
