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

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!

Excellent video for stress in the shoulders and neck! My daughter and I are doing the 30 day challenge together and it's really helping her release stress built up from work, volunteering and studying for the ACT.

Thanks for the amazing class.

Loved it ! As i have a short torso , i found this practice immensely helpful to add length to my upper body and release. Post the stretch it does feel my my upper body experienced a deep tissue massage !
