Yin & Somatics: How to Stretch Your Neck
Show Notes

I’m sort of amazed, and appalled, about how much misinformation there is about neck pain. One really irksome myth is that if your neck is tight, some stretching will help bring relief and over time, this stretching will fix the tightness and the pain it is “causing”. Total horse$%I$. Sorry to all of those influencers who are peddling this myth. 

There are ways that we can use stretches as part of a pain care plan however, and this is what you will practice here. I’ve combined somatics, stretches some resistance and of course, breathing to facilitate a bit of relief in the short term. But I’ve also provided some education to help you understand how these strategies can help you over come this discomfort or pain in the long term. 

This course is for anyone interested in learning about pain care in Yoga. In one week you will have 4 accessible practices to use for yourself or for students and clients. You will also learn why these practices are so effective.
