I’ve been doing this class in the morning and evening. It is great for relaxing the neck after using a keyboard for a while. Although I prefer the outdoor setting for the Release the Neck class, I feel this indoor class relaxes my neck and upper back better. Thanks, David, for the clear explanations.

Simple does it. Wow. I paused the video a couple of times so I could hold a particularly tense position. I did this after I practiced a vinyasa video; great pairing as my body was loose and relaxed before I went into these delicate positions.

I have suffered with a stiff neck for some time. I know David offers several neck yoga videos of different time lengths of time and all are good. This short one is effective when you have little time, as I usually do. Thank you. The second circling of the neck was so much easier than the first. :-)

My neck gets stiff from breast feeding at night this stretch really helps my neck loosen up

Brilliant series for a stiff neck! Been having discomfort for a few months .
Woke up yesterday with a really stiff,sore neck and thought I would really have to make an appointment with a physiotherapist. But first I decided to look for a practice on the internet. Found this one and did it, not thinking that it would have an effect. This morning about half an hour after getting up I realised that the stiffness and pain had almost completely disappeared. I couldn't believe it.
Thank you so much for sharing☺ .

Fantastic. A great way to bring me to the mat when I have a headache. Thank you for another great, slow class.

Great class. I have been having pretty severe neck pain the past week and this was perfect. I think anyone could do it and none of moves were painful.
