Relieving Neck Pain With Yoga

Neck pain can be …well…a pain in the neck. I periodically have issues with my neck when I’m dealing with a lot of stress; or from sitting long hours at work; or just from awkward sleeping posititions. When I go too long without addressing the pain I can get real cranky and the issue starts to affect other areas of my life. The neck pain will start to interfere with me being able to sleep well at night, and functioning throughout the day becomes difficult, which in turn affects my attitude and focus.

Yoga has been very helpful for me in relieving neck pain. I admit sometimes yoga can make neck pain worse if you are not moving through the appropriate postures. In the following video & flow chart I will instruct you through five postures that you can use individually or in sequence to relieve your neck pain.
