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.

The high backbends in the

The high backbends in the first 5-7 minutes gave me a painful knot between the shoulder blades which was kind of the opposite of what I was seeking in a neck and shoulder release. Neck still hurts and now I need to work on my upper back too.

Relieved me of stiffness from poor driving/sitting posture.

I did this class the morning before returning to work after a week-long road trip. I hadn't noticed the effects immediately, but when I had gotten into my car to drive to work after completing it, I could feel a lightness in my posture and a softness present in my neck and shoulders, which absolutely informed my mood and outlook. This continued throughout my day, and I found it easier to hold myself in healthier postures. Relief is a beautiful experience to repeatedly discovery in oneself. Thank you for this video.

I really loved this class! Working behind a microscope most of my working days, this is just what I need. I am now doing the 3o day challenge, but I will certainly do this class again. Thank you!

I really enjoyed this class David, thank you. As someone who has always had "rocks for shoulders" I found the release extremely liberating. I also find that my posture is a little different/better today after taking the class yesterday. This is one I will be returning to again and again :)

A fine stretch!

Working through neck pain from long ago whiplash, and neck and shoulder stiffness from stress. This is my first time doing this video, and I feel great. Thank you so much.
