If you're having issues with the player:

This gentle, slow, hatha yoga class guides you into a series of poses that thoroughly stretch the muscles around the shoulders and neck. It moves gradually toward deeper stretches, allowing the body to warm up and prepare for a deeper release of the tighter muscles in your body. Your neck and shoulders will feel wonderful after you're done.

Equipment: Strap
Style: Hatha Yoga

Some great stretches for the shoulders and neck, just what I needed today.
Thank you David, I love your style of teaching.
As a side note, there are a couple of downward dogs but other than that no standing poses in this class.

I've been a yoga teacher for the best part of 10 years and been practicing for almost 20.

This is far and away the best sequence for neck and shoulder I have done.

Thank you.

This is the best release/relief I’ve ever had for my extremely tight shoulders and neck. I feel like a new person after doing this!

I found this challenging at times, as my shoulders and upper back are so tight the muscles get tired really quickly, but I really appreciated the clear detailed instruction and enjoyed the results even though some stretches challenged me. Thank you David,

That class felt sooooo good for my neck and shoulders. I have this tightness or knot somewhere between right shoulder and rib cage, that cause a lot of neck and shoulder pain, and these stretches really helped. Thank you!

Hi David! This is a beautiful class as all in your deep release series. They have been my go to for years. Just a short question: why icould it be that my arms hurt a LOT when I extend them out to the sides to push the invisible walls with the fingers outstretched? It seems so unsuspectingly straightforward but it is almost unbearable. Of course, the pain does get better as I stretch every few days, but do you think it is just tension? Or am I doing something wrong? Thank you kindly. Cecilia
