Perfect way to release the neck, shoulders and upper back in preparation for sleep

This class is very helpful to release my shoulders, which eases up on a pinched nerve that causes a lot of neck pain. Wonderful on a rainy Sunday morning with my coffee :)

Felt a very unique sense of challenge in this one. I clearly need to revisit this. Thanks!

I found dolphin post with elbows in tight as much as I can, and following David's guidance, to be the most intense top shoulder/neck stretch that I've ever found! Bunny pose type feeling but easier to go deeper!

Thank you, David! Excellent video! I feel like I have a brand new set of shoulders after this video.

I’ve had osteoarthritis for a decade and yoga has helped me keep mobile and enjoy life.
