Same comment as Heather except it's the left side of my neck LOL. Includes all the best shoulder stretches!

Thanks for this!! Exactly what I need to do for a very tight right side of neck (I like doing other all over movement classes so always put off these gentler ones which I actually need !) I'm trying now to explore all the neck and shoulder classes to try and loosen that right side. I always enjoy your classes, thank you.

Thank you, truly. My upper back not only feel relaxed but is also painless. the succession of different arm bends and poses helped find a pose that was really soothing. And it's a pose I do not use often....

Worked extremely well this afternoon when I was trying to stave off a headache resulting from supertight neck and shoulders. Thank you!

Love this new practice Melissa. It's like a nice restorative with a bit of movement. It would work in the Restorative category of DYWM.

PS: I'm patiently waiting to book my spot on Salt Spring!!
